We invite submissions of poems of no more than 40 lines, on the theme of Climates. You may interpret the theme in any way you wish. The poem must be written in English; all poetic forms are welcome.
The winner will receive a prize of £200 plus publication in the London Library’s magazine. Two runners-up will receive £50 each. The winners will be invited to read their poems at a ceremony on Wednesday 25 March 2020.
