The Moth Poetry Prize 2017 submission deadline
December 31, 2017, 12:00 AM EST
The publishers of The Moth, Rebecca O’Connor and Will Govan, are delighted to introduce the newly named The Moth Poetry Prize (formerly the Ballymaloe International Poetry Prize). Now in its seventh year, it continues to offer one of the most lucrative awards in the world for a single unpublished poem.
The Moth Poetry Prize is open to anyone (over 16), as long as the poem is previously unpublished, and each year it attracts thousands of entries from new and established poets from over 50 countries worldwide.
This year’s judge is Daljit Nagra. Nagra was the first poet to win the Forward Prize for both his first collection of poetry and its title poem. He recently published his third collection of poetry with Faber, British Museum, and teaches poetry at Brunel University London and is Poet in Residence for BBC Radio 4.
