    Shooter Poetry Competition 2017

    Shooter is a literary magazine featuring entertaining, well crafted stories and poetry from up-and-coming writers, showcasing original artwork on the cover of each issue.

    Shooter’s Poetry Competition offers a chance to write about whatever most compels you, in any style. They are looking for sharply observed poetry with strong ideas and imaginative use of language: in short, arresting poems that appeal to both the head and the heart.

    Poems may be any theme or style, up to 125 lines long.

    Entry fee: 3 GBP for one poem or 8 GBP for three poems. Each entrant will receive an e-copy of the winter issue.

    All proceeds from entry fees go toward prizes, contributor payments and Shooter’s production costs, supporting our mission to promote the best new writing and encourage the principle of paying writers for their work.


    Open to anyone worldwide.


    The winner will receive 100 GBP (approx. 130 USD), publication in the winter issue and on the website, and promotion on Shooter’s social media. The runner-up will receive 30 GBP, publication on Shooter’s website, and promotion on social media.
