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
