Good to know

The competition is open to poets anywhere in the world. Entries must be in English, your own unaided work, and not a translation of another poet. Entries must not have been previously published or self-published, in print or online, or have won a prize in another competition.
The first, second and third prize-winners will be published in the Autumn 2022 issue of Poetry London and on the magazine’s website.
The prizes will be awarded at our Autumn launch reading in London.
