Princemere Poetry Prize

Out of the quarrel with others we make rhetoric; out of the quarrel with ourselves we make poetry. 
- W.B. Yeats





The deadline for this year's Princemere Poetry Prize, our tenth annual, was September 12. As usual, there was no entry fee. Dozens of poets made a voluntary contribution with their entries, so that we are now able to increase the prizemoney to $400 for the winning poem, with an additional $50 for runners-up.

Thank you especially to those poets, and to all who submitted work. The results of this contest will be announced (here and through Submittable) in January.
