Founded in 2006 to mark the centenary of the former Poet Laureate John Betjeman’s birth, the Betjeman Poetry Prize aims to foster creativity in young people whilst discovering and encouraging the next generation of British poets. We also procure funding to send as many professional poets as we can to visit pupils in schools.
We are thrilled to announce that this year's judges are the poet A.F. HARROLD and the children’s author LAUREN CHILD, and that there's been a new development in our partnership with St Pancras International. The winner of the 2015 BPP will be crowned St Pancras Laureate for the year.
The deadline for all poems is midnight on 31st July.
