Brotherton Poetry Prize 2021 winner announced
Lauren Pope has been named the winner of the 2021 Brotherton Poetry Prize.
Lauren was selected from hundreds of entrants by a panel of judges including Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, Professor of Poetry at Leeds.
She was presented with her award at an event last week, after each shortlisted poet read a piece of their work.
Lauren receives £1,000 and the opportunity to develop her creative practice with the University of Leeds Poetry Centre. The four runners-up each receive £200. Work by the shortlisted poets will be published as an anthology by Carcanet Press.
The Brotherton Poetry Prize celebrates and promotes poetry and supports new poets.
