The Manchester Poetry Prize

Found in: News

The 2016 Manchester Poetry Prize is now open to online and postal entries.

A £10,000 prize will be awarded for the best portfolio of three to five poems (maximum combined length: 120 lines). Open internationally to new and established writers aged 16 or over (no upper age limit).

The Manchester Writing Competition was established by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy in 2008, funded in the first instance by the Manchester Metropolitan University’s innovative Enterprise Fellowship scheme. The project was designed to attract the best new writing from around the world, and to establish Manchester as the focal point for a major literary award. Since it began, the Competition has awarded more than £115,000 to its winners. These are the UK’s biggest literary awards for unpublished writing.

The deadline for entries is Friday 23rd September 2016 and there is an entry fee of £17.50 (roughly $29.55).
