Event Details

The Latin Programme is launching its very first Poetry Prize judged by the brilliant writers Deanna Rodger, Blake Morrison and Ella Hickson.

The rules are simple.

By 1st December 2020, send your poem using the Latin phrase ‘de rerum natura’ (‘on the nature of things’) as a starting point. How you use the phrase is completely up to you. For example, it could simply be as a theme to meditate upon as you write. You don’t need to use the phrase – or indeed any Latin – in your poem if you don’t wish.

Entries should be no more than 40 lines.

The winner will be announced on February 1st, 2021.
