The inaugural Poet for Places prize offers the winning poet a potentially life-changing prize of a £10,000 grant and one-to-one mentoring with award-winning poet Daljit Nagra, Dr Emma Filtness and other creative writers at Brunel University London. The competition is free to enter and poets can enter one or two poems of a maximum of 40 lines each. The poems should be inspired by historic sites or places in London (see the site for the full details).
Note that as well as the poem (or poems), entrants must also provide a 300-word personal statement that answers the following three questions:
1. What does London’s heritage and identity mean to you?
2. Why do you write poetry?
3. Why do you want to become London’s next Poet for Places?
