This is the perfect opportunity to have your poems read by three of today’s leading poets, stand the chance to win £5000, and see your name added to the impressive list of past winners, including Michael Hulse, Carol Ann Duffy, Jo Shapcott, Ruth Padel, Ian Duhig and the current winner Sinéad Morrissey.
Now in its 31st year, the Poetry Society’s National Poetry Competition is one of the leading poetry prizes. It attracts entries from Nantwich to Nairobi and offers to anyone who enters the opportunity to discover their own potential as a writer. Whether you are an established poet or a budding writer, winning often provides that essential spur to take your writing further.
Although called the National Poetry Competition, it is open to anyone internationally.
