Poetry Business New Poets’ Prize
Since 2016, the Poetry Business New Poets’ Prize has offered publication and development opportunities to poets aged 17-24. These four poets are the winners of the 2022 prize, and have been working with The Poetry Business to develop their pamphlet collections, which will be freshly published for the festival.
These poems deal with some vital themes and ideas; the uneasy approach of adulthood; the delicate balance of our changing climate, the inhospitable nature of the UK under austerity and the boundaries of identity.
Among the four winners are Squad grads Beth Davies (with her book The Pretence of Understanding) and Chloe Elliott (with Encyclopaedia).
You can attend this celebratory event either in person or online. 4pm.
