The Resurgence Prize with The Poetry School is the world’s first major ecopoetry award. Three prizes are awarded each year for original and previously unpublished ecopoems in English.
With a first prize of £5,000, plus a residency at White House Farm, Great Glemham, for the best single poem embracing ecological themes, the award ranks amongst the most prestigious of any single-poem competition. The second prize is £2,000 and third prize £1,000. The winners will also be invited to a special awards ceremony at the Poetry in Aldeburgh festival, November 3rd – 5th 2017, co-curated by The Poetry School.
This year’s judges are Lavinia Greenlaw and Dr Mina Gorji.
The prize was set up by The Resurgence Trust and is run by The Poetry School.
