The Melbourne Poets Union (MPU) is publishing a chapbook of poems related to football - any kind of football, related to football in any way. Edited by Garth Madsen & Phil Ilton. To be published in September. We're currently
receiving submissions - you do need to be financial member of MPU.

And here's more details on the chapbook:

Score High Marks!

It's points plus to be in

Kickers and Knockers
The MPU Chapbook on Football
ed. by Phil Ilton & Garth Madsen

Your poem(s) could love it, hate it, be related to football in any way. Any footy.
Aussie Rules, Soccer, Rugby League/Union, Gridiron, Gaelic Football.

Not sure you can write on football? Then take a punt; only a dropkick would drop the ball and pass this opportunity.

We've received Grand Final poems. We'd love to receive some more.

Don't miss the siren.
So you're not behind, make it your goal to get your submission in by 31 May.

Guidelines & address for submissions on website: http://home.vicnet.net.au/~mpuinc
