National Poetry Competition launched

The Poetry Society’s National Poetry Competition 2014 is now open for entries. One of the most prestigious competitions of its kind, the National Poetry Competition attracts around 13,000 entries each year, from around the UK and beyond. Judged anonymously, it puts established and emerging writers on a level playing field. The judges this year are Roddy Lumsden, Glyn Maxwell and Zoë Skoulding.

Last year’s competition was won by Linda France: “[The National Poetry Competition] has encouraged me to keep the faith: that poetry will find its way to readers and has a proper place in the world.”
