Who Should Enter Our Free Poetry Competitions?

Our free poetry competitions are open to any UK resident. Our overall objective with these competitions is to increase the level of interest in poetry and to encourage people to start writing poetry for themselves, so it really doesn’t matter what level you are currently at. The absence of an entry fee makes these competitions totally accessible!

Our main poetry competitions are the annual National Poetry Anthology and Local Poem competitions, both of which carry a £1000 first prize to the overall winner.

You can find details of all our past National Poetry Anthology winners here, and details about our past Local Poem Competition winners here.
