Scotland's International Poetry Prize
 
Based in Scotland's National Book Town, Wigtown Poetry Competition has, in more than a decade, become one of the UK's best established writing prizes and a launchpad for many writers' careers.

As ever, in 2018 we welcome entries from poets writing in English wherever they may live.

Separate categories celebrate the best of Scottish Gaelic and Scots language verse, while a new award will acknowledge a rising talent in Dumfries & Galloway.
 
The competition closes on 8 June, with a prize-giving at Wigtown Book Festival (21-30 September 2018).  
We hope to see you there.
