In memory of Professor Bill Overton (1946-2012), the School of the Arts, English and Drama offers this prize for a sequence of poems on any subject, up to 300 lines.*  

Much of Bill’s teaching and writing was on poetry, and the proceeds from this competition will fund an early-career poet in residence for Loughborough University.

We hope that this poetry prize, set up in Bill’s memory, will  contribute to the creative life of the School, and the experience of our students.

Entries and payment of fee (£12 per sequence of poetry) can be made by clicking the 'book event' button.

Hard copy entries must be accompanied by a cheque payable to: 'Loughborough University', FAO: Lizzie Hobbs, LU Arts, Martin Hall, Loughborough University, Loughborough, Leicestershire, LE11 3TU by 1st September 2017.
