Comedian, poet and actor Phill Jupitus has recorded a series of films to let young writers know all about the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award and why they should enter. The 31 July deadline is nearing in the search to find 2016’s Foyle Young Poets of the Year. The competition run by the Poetry Society, now open for entries, is the biggest award for writers aged 11-17, welcomes poems on any theme, and is free to enter.  Each year 100 winners (15 top winners and 85 commended) are selected by judges, who this year are Malika Booker and WN Herbert, and will receive their awards at an annual prize-giving event on National Poetry Day. Past winners have included this year’s TS Eliot prize winner Sarah Howe, and Helen Mort. The deadline is 31 July. More details
