Limericks were popularised by the nonsense poet, Edward Lear, in the nineteenth century and they've been a comic staple ever since. They are frequently uncomplimentary and often downright bawdy – a joke form as memorable as they are witty.
The judge this year is Diana Nadin – Director of Studies at The Writers Bureau. She says:
"I love a good limerick and I was made to laugh out loud at many of last year's entries so I'm looking forward to reading this year's submissions. Limericks are a good way to let your writing hair down, have a laugh and have a good play with words. And, there's chance to win a great prize too!"
- 1st Prize: £100 plus the choice of a Writers Bureau course worth over £350.
- 2 × Runners-up Prizes: £50 plus free membership to The Association of Freelance Writers worth £24.99.
Winners will be published on the competition website and promoted on The Writers Bureau's social media platforms.
