Join us for the launch of Wigtown Poetry Prize 2020. Founded in 2005, the Wigtown Poetry Prize is one of the UK’s best established writing competitions and a launchpad for many writers’ careers.
Refreshed and rebranded in 2019, Wigtown Poetry Prize welcomes entries from poets writing in English wherever they may live. Separate categories celebrate the best of Scottish Gaelic and Scots language poetry, a special category acknowledges a rising talent in Dumfries & Galloway, and the Alastair Reid Pamphlet Prize recognises an outstanding anthology.
Find out more about this year’s prize including judges, categories and prize fund from members of the Wigtown team.
