    The Keats-Shelley Prize 2018

    The Keats-Shelley Prize is an annual competition for poems and essays on Romantic themes. Inaugurated in 1998, the Prize encourages all adult writers (over 18) to respond creatively to the work of the Romantics.

    Submit poems on the theme of Liberty: a celebration of Shelley’s Prometheus Unbound, or an essay, which can be on any aspect of the work or lives of the Romantics and their circles.

    Poems must be written in English, and be of no more than 30 lines.

    There is no entry fee.


    Open worldwide to all writers over the age of 18.


    Winners will be announced at an Awards ceremony in London, April 2018. Shortlisted entrants will be notified in person in March.

    There are also cash prizes of 3,000 GBP (approx. 3,975 USD) and the winning entries will be published in the Keats-Shelley Review.
