Newcastle Poetry Competition

The 2020 Newcastle Poetry Competition is now closed for entries.

Both categories of the Newcastle Poetry Competition are now closed for entries. Winners will be notified by the end of April. Due to the cancellation of Fault Lines: Newcastle Poetry Festival 2020 as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 Health Emergency, the winning poets and poems will be announced and made available to read online in May.
