Country pub poets called!
Vintage Inns are holding a competition, judged by Anderw Motion, for poets to co-author an eight-line poem celebrating country pubs
The competition is inspired by Andrew Motion's poetry for Vintage Inn's latest press campaign about rural pubs.
Poets are asked to enter lines for the poem via a poetry competition tab on Vintage Inns' Facebook page. Andrew Motion will chose the best line submitted each week, which will then be added to the poem and uploaded ready for the next line. Each winner will get a famed copy of the eventual poem, and a meal for four with wine at a local Vintage Inn.
The poem so far reads:
The muted brilliance of autumn leaves
The wind’s deep voice soft-tickling the trees
Weekly submissions close on Thursdays at 5pm. The competition is currently running, and closes on 5 December.
