Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature is delighted to announce that it is searching for a young poet to represent Nottingham on the international stage.
The call for applications is now open and entries are accepted via the Nottingham City of Literature website.
The competition is open to all poets aged between 18-30 who live, work or study in Nottingham. Entrants will be encouraged to send in a personal written statement, or a short film about themselves, covering their work as a poet, why they would like to have the role, what trends they’d like to explore as part of the role, and how they’d best use the role. They will also be required to send in two poems with one themed on Nottingham.
Entries will be open until the end of June 2017.
For more information, visit the Nottingham City of Literature Website.
