The winner will be given the chance to have 100 copies of their poem published and will be invited to a launch event to celebrate. The two runners up will receive £50 book tokens.

Entries cost £12 and are open worldwide for anyone 16 and over. There is no restriction on the number of entries, but they must be submitted by 6 January 2020.
