Welcome to our new Humour Verse Competition! We have noticed a scarcity of humour verse competitions with decent prize money, even though there are huge numbers of people who like to write and read humour verse. So the team at Flash 500 have decided to launch this one. The entries will be judged by Lorraine Mace, winner of the Petra Kenney International Poetry Competition, humour verse category.

What are we looking for? Any form of humour will be accepted, in any style, but the content must be original and it has to make us smile. Anything from a limerick to a poem of 30 lines in length is accepted.


Deadline: 30th September or 31st December
"A man's face is his autobiography. A woman's face is her work of fiction." ~ Oscar Wilde

"For a short space of time I remained at the window watching the pallid lightnings that played above Mont Blanc and listening to the rushing of the Arve, which pursued its noise way beneath. The same lulling sounds acted as a lullaby to my too keen sensations; when I placed my head upon my pillow, sleep crept over me; I felt it as it came and blessed the giver of oblivion."
— Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
