Manchester Cathedral Poetry Prize

Closing Date: 26 June 2015

Judge: Kim Moore (Yes, Kim Moore, who will running a workshop for us on the 7th June!!)

Theme: Poems submitted should be broadly religious or ‘spiritual’ in nature and, like all good religious poetry, appeal to those who would not necessarily describe themselves as ‘religious’. We encourage poetry from a range of faith traditions, as well as from those struggling to discover a sense of the sacred. Poems are welcome in any style or form and will be judged solely their merits as poetry.

Length: 40 lines maximum
