The White Review Poet’s Prize 2020 is now open for entries. The Poet’s Prize was founded in 2017 with support from Jerwood Charitable Foundation, and is for English-language poets who are at the crucial stage of creating their debut pamphlet or collection.
The winning poet will receive a significant financial reward of £2,500, expert, personalised professional and editorial advice, and publication of their entry in THE WHITE REVIEW. The Prize is open to residents of the UK and Ireland.
The White Review Poet’s Prize only accepts entries of poetry portfolios (5 – 10 pages per portfolio), as opposed to single-poem entries.
The Poet’s Prize is also unique among UK poetry prizes in actively encouraging work which explores and expands the possibilities of the page-poetry form.
The judges for the 2020 White Review Poet’s Prize are Jay Bernard, Emily Berry and Kayo Chingonyi.
