Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award submission deadline
July 31, 2017, 12:00 AM EDT
The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award is an opportunity for any young poet aged 11-17 to accelerate their writing career. Since it was founded in 1998 the Award has kick-started the career of some of today’s most exciting new voices, such as Helen Mort, a successful poet whose first collection was recently published by Chatto & Windus. With entries from over 7,600 young people this year across from the UK and worldwide, it is the largest competition of its kind and its importance is widely attested.
This year’s judges are Sinéad Morrissey and Kayo Chingonyi.
