Limerick Lockdown Competition


In honour of limerick day we are running a competition which is open to all Leeds Beckett University research students and staff.

Published on 11 May 2020

The limerick must contain the following elements:
Five lines; Lines 1, 2, 5 must rhyme; Lines 3 and 4 must rhyme.
A good limerick will have a clever unanticipated punch line and line 5 will often have puns, word play or a witty feature as part of it.

The Closing date is Sunday 17th May and this will be judged by our very own Irish Professor Brendan Gough.
Entries will be judged on the quality of the Limerick (form, humour, punch line etc)
There will be one winning prize plus 1 runner up prize. The winner will receive a £25 amazon voucher
Please submit your entries to  using the heading Lockdown Limerick competition


Best of luck!
