Winchester Poetry Prize: Send in your poems!

The deadline for the competition is midnight on Sunday, 31 July so you have just under three weeks to send in your poems.  This is a fantastic opportunity to win a generous cash prize, read at a special prize-giving event at Winchester Poetry Festival on Sunday 9 October 2016, and be published in a competition anthology to be launched at the festival.

Winchester Poetry Festival is a biannual event and this is the first year of the prize so it will be a really special occasion to be involved in.  The entry fee is £5 for your first poem and £4 for each subsequent poem.

First Prize: £1000

2nd Prize: £500

3rd Prize: £250

All entries will be read by judge Mimi Khalvati.
