The Poetry Book Society was founded by T S Eliot in 1953 to 'propagate the art of poetry' and has an illustrious history of discovering the best new contemporary poets. In our new Student Poetry Prize we're looking for talented student writers and emerging new voices who will go on to be the next generation of Poetry Book Society selections.
Entry is free to PBS members. Non-members must pay a £10 entry fee.
The Competition will be judged by the poet Sam Buchan-Watts.
The winners will be notified on the 2nd March and officially announced on the 6th March.
The following prizes are available to win: 1st Prize £100 | 2nd Prize £50 | 3rd Prize £25
An additional 3 highly commended poems will receive PBS Associate membership.
All the winners will have their poems published on the PBS website and the 1st prize winner will also feature in the PBS Bulletin.
