Nottingham Young Poet Laureate

Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature is delighted to announce that it is searching for a young poet to represent Nottingham on the international stage. To coincide with Nottingham Poetry Festival, the call for applications is now open and entries will be accepted via the Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature website.

The competition is open to all poets aged between 18-30 who live, work or study in Nottingham. Entrants will be encouraged to send in a personal written statement, or a short film about themselves, covering their work as a poet, why they would like to have the role, what trends they’d like to explore as part of the role, and how they’d best use the role. They will also be required to send in two poems with one themed on Nottingham.

More information about the competition, judging panel and what the two-year tenure involves, can be found on the website.
