Entry to the White Review Poet’s Prize.

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. This year, the Prize is partnered with Cheerio Publishing, which enables us to increase the award money to £2,500.

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. Please see the website for full entry guidelines.

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 2020 Judges are Emily Berry, Jay Bernard and Kayo Chingonyi.
