Submit for Overton Poetry Prize 2017

The Overton Poetry Prize 2017, will close on 1st September 2017, and the winner will be announced at the end of September 2017.

In memory of Professor Bill Overton (1946-2012), the School of the Arts, English and Drama offers this prize for a sequence of poems on any subject, up to 300 lines.

The first-placed entry will be published in chapbook form. There will be two further prizes of £50 each.

Much of Bill’s teaching and writing was on poetry, and the proceeds from this competition fund an early-career poet in residence for Loughborough University. Students from the School can study Creative Writing modules at BA level, and undertake an MA and PhD in Creative Writing. We hope that this poetry prize, set up in Bill’s memory, will contribute to the creative life of the School of the Arts, English and Drama and the experience of the students.
