The Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University is launching The Manchester Poetry Prize – a new literary competition celebrating excellence in creative writing.
The Manchester Poetry Prize is open to writers internationally, and will award a cash prize of £10,000 to the writer of the best portfolio of poems submitted.
Entrants are asked to submit a portfolio of poetry (three to five poems; the total length of the portfolio should not exceed 120 lines). The poems can be on any subject but must be new work, not published elsewhere.
Deadline for entries: 1st August 2008
