Poetry Prize Launched For Unpublished Poets

Pan Macmillan imprint Picador is on the look out for new talent with a prize for poetry.

The Picador Poetry Prize will be awarded for a representative selection of previously unpublished work. The winner will receive a small advance and have their debut collection edited by poetry editor Dan Paterson, before being published on the Picador poetry list.

The judging panel, chaired by Paterson, will include poets Jackie Kay and John Stammers and Guardian online literary editor Sarah Crown.

Submissions will close in September, with the winner announced in December.
