Glyn Maxwell is the judge of the £1,000 Live Canon poetry competition, which has a deadline of 31 July. Twenty-five shortlisted poems are published in an annual anthology, and all 25 are also performed by the Live Canon ensemble (from memory) in a special event at Greenwich theatre in south-east London to launch the anthology and announce the overall winner. As part of the judging process all poems are read aloud by the judging panel. Live Canon are an ensemble performing poetry in the English language, and occasionally bursting into song. They are a group of professional actors and theatre makers, led by artistic director, Helen Eastman, who founded the ensemble in 2008. More details
