New Voices First Pamphlet Awards

The New Voices First Pamphlet Award is a prize for poets aged 25 and under for a collection of ten poems.

At least two winners will have their poetry pamphlets published by Wildfire Words, the publisher for Cheltenham Poetry Festival. They will also receive marketing support, 50 free copies, and their work will be celebrated at a book launch at Cheltenham Poetry Festival.

Winners will have the opportunity to be a paid judge in next year’s competition.

Entrants must not have had a book published previously with an independent publisher, but individual poems may have been previously published in print or online (so long as you hold the copyright). Poems may be on any theme.

Imogen Osborne, Natalie Perman, & Marilyn Timms.
