The Poetry Business Competition Winners' Reading

Jerwood Centre

01 July 2017
2.00 - 4.00pm

Contact us to book

The Poetry Business International Book & Pamphlet Competition was the first of its kind in Britain. Now in its 31st year, it has launched the careers of many successful poets, and the annual winners’ reading at the Wordsworth Trust has become an important date in the contemporary poetry calendar. 

The four winners, chosen by Mimi Khalvati and Ian Duhig, will read a selection of their own work and the event will also feature poems from the first ever Wordsworth Trust Prize for a single poem, which will be chosen by the public from a shortlist published in March. 

The winners of both competitions will be announced on this page in late Spring.
