Poetry for Good

Poetry for Good celebrates the lives and stories of the UK's Key Workers. Whether it is teachers or nurses, cleaners or couriers, carers or shopworkers – millions of people, often on low pay, keep our nation going.

Entries are free and open to anyone aged 11 or over. There are three categories - Growing Word, Written Word and Spoken Word.

Each Category will have one winner and one runner up, with a cash prize of £300 for each winner and £150 for each runner up.

There will also be an additional special prize of £150 for the best overall poem about cleaners and the contribution that they make.

Judges: Cecilia Knapp, Katherine Lockton and Rachel Long
