The Owl and the Pussycat Hotel, as proud sponsor of the Fairway Galle Literary Festival, is delighted to invite young aspiring poets to participate in 2017th Edward Lear Prize for Poetry.

Edward Lear (12 May 1812 – 29 January 1888) was an English artist, illustrator, musician, author and poet, and is known now mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry and prose and especially his limericks, a form he popularized. His famous poem, The Owl and the Pussycat, was an inspiration to us and gave birth to our hotel´s name.

At OTP Hotel, we wish this prize enabled young aspiring poets, to find inspiration from his works and create something unique and special that is a celebration of this life.

The submission period for entries will be open from September 1st 2016 until October 31st 2016, inclusive.
