Portico Poetry Prize

Manchester
Fri, 1st June 2012 - Tue, 31st July 2012

 

The library is delighted to announce full details of our new poetry competition.

There will be two awards; The Portico Poetry Prize and The Portico Young Poetry Prize. Entry for the former is £4 plus £2.50 for each poem after; the latter is free. There's cash prizes (£250; £150; £100) for the Portico Poetry Prize and the Young Poetry Prize winner will be named Portico Young Poet of the Year; both awards give the opportunity to be anthologised and published.

The guidelines are relatively loose; the only stipulations are that all poems entered must be linked in some way to the works of Charles Dickens and no more than 40 lines (not including the title).

The Portico Poetry Prize will be judged by Mandy Coe; The Portico Young Poetry Prize will be judged by Richy Campbell, Lisa Mansell and Krishan Coupland.

The closing date for both competitions are 31st July. Please see the details below on how to enter or print an entry form, found at the bottom of this page.

Please send a short cover letter, telling us who you are, no more than four lines.

Entries to both competitions in the e-mail's body to poetry@theportico.org.uk or porticopoetry@gmail.com. Please state which competition you are submitting to in the e-mail header e.g. `Portico Young Poetry Prize Entry' or `Portico Poetry Prize Entry'.

Please note: pressing queries regarding the prize are best sent to porticopoetry@gmail.com.
