Frogmore Poetry Prize 2011 - deadline 31st May

The closing date for submissions to this year’s (25th) Frogmore Poetry Prize is 31 May. Inaugurated in 1987 when the first winner was David Satherley,

The prize itself has always been paid in guineas. For younger poets for whom guineas constitute a hazy folk memory, the booty is currently £210 (or 200 guineas). The adjudicator this year is Tamar Yoseloff, whose latest collection The City With Horns (Salt) is scheduled for publication on 15 May.

Tamar Yoseloff
Last year’s winner was A K S Shaw and previous winners include Tobias Hill, John Latham (twice), Mario Petrucci, Caroline Price (three times) and Gina Wilson. No entry form is required and the entry fee is a modest £3 per poem. Full details at: http://www.frogmorepress.co.uk/
