Our support goes towards establishing a new prize designed for English-language poets who are at the crucial stage of creating their debut pamphlet or collection. The Prize is unique in that it looks to unpublished collections of poems and seeks to expand the page-poetry form. The winning poet will receive a financial reward of £1700, expert and personalised professional and editorial advice from a leading poetry editor and two prominent UK poets, and publication of their entry in The White Review’s online and print issues. A national call for entries will be launched on 6 September and close on 1 October 2017. The judges for the 2017 White Review Poets Prize are Vahni Capildeo, Kayo Chingonyi and Donald Futers.
