The Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre is now accepting submissions for its 2022 International Poetry Competition. The competition is open to both new and established poets aged 18 and over from across the globe and has two categories:
-Open category (open to all poets aged 18 years and over)
-English as an Additional Language (EAL) category (open to all poets aged 18 and over who write in English as an Additional Language)
The winners of each category will receive £1000 and both runners up £200.
This year’s judge is the award-winning poet Caroline Bird, whose fifth collection, In These Days of Prohibition, was shortlisted for the 2017 T. S. Eliot Prize and the Ted Hughes Award.
The first three poems submitted cost £5 per poem. Subsequent entries in the same submission cost £4 per poem. Entrants may submit a maximum of ten poems, following the instructions in the Oxford Brookes Shop. All entries must be unpublished work.
