New Voice in Poetry Prize 2020

Announcing the NVP Prize 2020

The NEW VOICE IN POETRY PRIZE is a brand new competition for emerging spoken word poets and performers who are yet to publish a full collection of work. If you have significant potential, interesting ideas, a relevant message and skillful execution, we would love to hear from you.

To enter, you will need to upload two recorded audio poems. Poems can be voice-only or voice accompanied by sound/music. The winner will have their work recorded and published alongside a collection of established poets from across the UK, as well as receiving a £250 prize.

Judges this year are Tom Chivers (Director, Penned in the Margins), Zena Edwards (poet and arts activist project maker) and Ross Sutherland (poet and podcaster).

The NEW VOICE IN POETRY PRIZE is part of The Soundscape Poetry Project. Entries have now closed.

The shortlist and winner will be announced in June 2020.
