Congratulations to the 10 poets who made the long-list. The standard of entries was really high, lots of brilliant work. There were 319 entries in total (including Bursary and 50% Discounted categories), which was pretty good for a new concept comp.

The announcement of the shortlist of 10 will happen on the News page next week. So, pop back to see which audio poems made the cut. 

The NEW Plaza Poetry Prize (20 lines) is open to enter. Judged by Rory Waterman. 1st prize: £1,000. All those who entered Audio Poetry can email me for a 50% discount link: simon@theplazaprizes.com

To build on the moderate success of this competition – we will be running The Plaza Audio Poetry Prize again next year, with poet, writer and broadcaster, Paul Farley, as judge. Deadline: June 30th, 2024. So, plenty of time to get writing to record your work. This is a great opportunity to break into audio-publishing.
