The McLellan Poetry Prize is awarded as part of the annual McLellan Arts Festival on the Isle of Arran. With nine prizes including a first prize of £1,500 the McLellan Poetry Competition provides a major opportunity for aspiring poets to gain recognition.
This year’s Judge, Luke Wright, will present the prizes at an online presentation evening on Thursday 26th August 2021, as sadly the festival is not being held live this year. All prizewinners will be invited to this (virtual) event. Full details (and entry forms) can be found at Arran Theatre and Arts Trust | Poetry Competition
This competition is unusual in that poems of up to 89 lines are eligible.
The closing date for submissions is midnight on 11th July.
