Strokestown's poetry dollar bargains

The entry form for Ireland's Strokestown 2009 poetry competition is online. American entrants, with the dollar currently down in the dumps, can enter their finest poems for 5 bucks each. Not so lucky the phlegmatic bards of Blighty who must cough up a hefty 4 quid, the equivalent of 8 US greenbacks. Europoets? A fiver a poem.

Poet-in-Residence's advice to aspiring contestants - Before entering check your copy of the Financial Times or Wall Street Journal for up-to-the-minute information. And to Gaelic poets - double-check the Strokestown website - your poems may/not be judged this time round.
