Poetry Book Society Student Poetry Prize 2017
Deadline: Wed 13 Dec 2017
The Competition is open to all current students aged over 18 and will be judged by the poet Sam Buchan-Watts

The Poetry Book Society was founded by T S Eliot in 1953 to 'propagate the art of poetry' and has an illustrious history of discovering the best new contemporary poets. In our new Student Poetry Prize we're looking for talented student writers and emerging new voices who will go on to be the next generation of Poetry Book Society selections.

Prizes: 1st Prize £100 | 2nd Prize £50 | 3rd Prize £25
An additional 3 highly commended poems will receive PBS Associate membership.
All the winners will have their poems published on the PBS website and the 1st prize winner will also feature in the PBS Bulletin.

Judge: Sam Buchan-Watts is co-editor of the poetry press Clinic. His pamphlet was published in 2016 in the Faber New Poets series, and he won an Eric Gregory Award the same year. He is also the Reviews Editor for Poetry London.

Entry is free to PBS members. Non-members must pay a £10 entry fee.

The closing date of the Competition is 13th December midnight (UK time)
