Great New Edinburgh Limerick Contest!

Inspired by the terrific limericks Burgh residents submitted to the “Great New Edinburgh Limerick Contest” of 1979, the NEN team thought it would be fun to revive this poetic challenge for 2020!

The criteria remain the same: Limericks must be on New Edinburgh subjects. Rhyme and metre must be correct. All limericks must be original!

Winning entries will be published in the April 2020 edition of the New Edinburgh News. Local notoriety will be your prize!

Deadline for submissions is March 10, 2020. Send your limericks to
