Cost of entry: £5 per poem
1st prize: £300, 2nd prize: £100
The judge is poet Adam Horovitz, whose second full collection of poems, The Soil Never Sleeps, was published by Palewell Press in 2018. It was written over several seasons on six pasture farms in England and Wales, all of which eschew conventional, chemical-driven farming practice in favour of ecologically minded, biodiversity-friendly farming.
Adam says: “I am interested in poems which dig deep into the ecosystem; poems which root around in the soil and dig up surprising ideas and expose new shoots of life; poems which ask hard questions more than they offer answers; poems which are beautiful, challenging and full of subtle music and danger – much like the world we share.”
