I will be judging The Portico Young Poetry Prize this year, alongside fellow judges Richy Campbell and Lisa Mansell. The competition is run annually by The Portico Library in Manchester.
Entries for the competition can be made by email. There is a fee of £4 for The Portico Poetry Prize, but the Portico Young Poetry Prize (for under 18s) is free. Full details can be found on the library’s website.
