‘A Poem To Remember’: public vote now open for war poetry contest

The public vote is now open for A Poem To Remember, a new competition marking the centenary of the First World War. The judging panel, who whittled the entries down to a shortlist of 5 poems, was chaired by historian Dan Snow and included Andy McNab, Stephen Fry, Caroline Wyatt, JJ Chalmers, Katherine Rundell, Meena Kandasamy, Inua Ellams and the Duke of Westminster.

Supported by The Poetry Society, the DNRC’s A Poem To Remember prize seeks to celebrate poetry honouring those affected by service, paying tribute to humankind’s capacity to cope with adversity.

Visit A Poem To Remember’s website to watch readings of the shortlisted entries, and vote for the poem you’d like to see win the £2000 prize. You only have until Saturday 9 June to choose your favourite poem!
