Gorgeous, inspirational video about the Foyle Young Poets Award

The Poetry Society is delighted to present a brand new short film celebrating the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award, featuring the 2012 poets, judges Helen Mort and Christopher Reid plus interviews with former winners of the Award.

Filmed at the prize-winners’ week-long residency at the beautiful Hurst Arvon centre in Shropshire earlier this year, this short five minute film is full of inspiration for poets thinking of entering. So sit back and enjoy!

Foyle Young Poets of the Year 2013 is now closed for entries – you can read the winning poems on the Poetry Society website. The annual competition will reopen in March 2014 – sign up to Young Poets Network and be kept in the loop!
