Carol Ann Duffy to judge book and pamphlet competition
The deadline is 29 November for the Poetry Business book and pamphlet competition, to be judged this year by the poet laureate, Carol Ann Duffy. Entrants are invited to submit a collection of 20-24 pages of poems for the chance to win a cash prize and publication by Smith Doorstop Books.
Four first stage winners are selected and given the opportunity to submit a full-length manuscript to the second round of the competition, in which one of them can win book publication. The three first-stage winners receive pamphlet publication. All four winners will receive an equal share of £2,000, and have launch readings hosted by the Poetry Business. More details
