“Conversationally Yours” - A Poetry Collaboration Competition

This year sees the launch of a series of collaborative pamphlets from the Hedgehog Poetry Press, where two poets will create a Conversation in Poetry. The idea is simple - they agree a topic and working on a call and response basis, each will react to their partner’s poems with one of their own.

The first three collections feature work by Sarah Thomson and Nigel Kent, followed by Diana Devlin and Irene Cunningham, and we are keen to widen the scope and see what other poets can bring to the format.

Hedgehog Press' ‘Conversationally Yours’ competition challenges you and a colleague in poetry to create your own Conversation, with the best of these to be published by the press.

Nigel Kent and Sarah Thomson will judge the competition that will find the winners:

Seeing their Conversation published by the Hedgehog Press in Pamphlet form
Sharing 100 copies of the publication
Being invited to read their work at a future Hedgehog Press Event
