The Disabled Poets’ Prize has been set up to award some of the excellent work currently being produced by deaf and disabled poets writing in the UK. With the support of a range of generous sponsors, our prizes offer both financial and development support, along with industry recognition and an increased profile.
Thanks to the generous support of a number of partners, the winners of the inaugural Disabled Poets’ Prize in each category will receive:
This prize is awarded for the best single poem submitted. As well as the cash prize, the overall winner will receive a place on the Arvon Foundation’s online Writing Through course. Judged by Jamie Hale and Romalyn Ante.
This prize is awarded in association with Verve Poetry Press. As well as the cash prize, the winning pamphlet will be offered a publication contract by Verve Poetry Press. Judged by Jamie Hale and Peter Raynard.
This prize is supported by Verve Poetry Festival. It will be judged by Sahera Khan and DL Williams.
