Poetry London's 2015 competition is now open for entries, and we are delighted to announce Glyn Maxwell as this year's judge.
The winning poems will be published in the Autumn 2015 issue of the magazine and commendations will be published online. Prizes will be presented at the launch of the autumn issue in London.
1st prize: £1000
2nd prize: £500
3rd prize: £200
Four commendations: £75
Entries must be in English, your own unaided work, and not a translation of another poet. Entries must not have been previously published or self-published in print or online, or have won a prize in another competition. The maximum length is 80 lines.
Your name and address must not appear on the poems, nor any other marks that could identify you. Please enter the title of each poem on the entry form, or the first line for untitled poems.
You may enter as many poems as you wish, accompanied by the appropriate entry fee. For Poetry London subscribers the entry fee is £3 per poem; for non-subscribers £5. You are also eligible for the lower entry fee if you take out a subscription now.
Closing date: 1 May 2015
Winners will be notified by 1 July 2015.
