    The Plough Poetry Prize 2019

    Organised by the Plough Arts Centre, The Plough Poetry Prize is now open for its 2019 edition.

    Maximum length, excluding title and any blank lines: 40 lines. Poems must be the original work of the entrant, unpublished, and must not have won a prize in any other competition.

    Each entered poem, including its title, should be typed single-spaced in a standard 10 or 12 point font on one side of a single A4 sheet, with a left margin wide enough for ring binding, and should not bear anything to identify the poet. No fancy/coloured/oversized fonts or images.

    The competition will be judged by Greta Stoddart. Copyright remains with the author.

    Entry fee: 5 GBP per poem.


    Open to anyone worldwide, no age limit.
