Faber poetry competition

As part of its 80th anniversary celebrations, Faber and Faber has launched 52 Poems, a web application that will offer a weekly poetry showcase featuring new voices as well as much-loved classics.

May 12, 2009

The widget, which can be downloaded from www.52poems.co.uk, can be shared and embedded in social network profiles, blogs and website home pages. Users can copy and display their own widget, even selecting from a range of colour options. 52 Poems is also available as a Facebook application, which can be added to users’ personal profiles.

To celebrate the launch of 52 Poems, Times Higher Education has some great prizes to give away in an exclusive competition.

One winner will receive a set of six Faber 80th anniversary poetry hardbacks, celebrating the work of T.S. Eliot and Sylvia Plath, among others.

Four runners-up will each receive a Faber limited-edition Poetry Essentials box set, featuring 10 classic paperbacks by key 20th-century poets.

To enter:

Identify a website that could most benefit from the addition of this poetry widget and explain why, in jest or in earnest, in no more than 100 words.

• The winning entries will be published on the Times Higher Education website at the end of June 2009.

• Employees of TSL Education and their family members are not eligible.

• Winning entries will be chosen by the editor, whose decision is final.
