The New Poets Prize
The New Poets Prize came at the right time for me - providing me with a critical opportunity to think about how my poems could fit together in a pamphlet, and also giving me the opportunity to receive much-needed feedback from some of the best poetry teachers in the country - both essential processes for any young poet. – Theophilus Kwek, winner in the 2015/16 New Poets Prize with his collection 'The First Five Storms'.
Winning the New Poets Prize has opened a magic-box of opportunities: an Arvon course, publication, and wonderful editing sessions. But, most importantly, it has brought lots of Promising Things into sight for the future - whatever happens over the next few years, I know the Poetry Business will be there to support me. – Imogen Cassels, winner in the 2015/16 New Poets Prize with her collection 'The Fire Manifesto'.
