In 2017 The Poetry Society’s Young Poets Network partnered with the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich to challenge young poets to respond to the changing face of our polar regions. The winning poem and eight runners-up are presented in a new anthology, now available to read online below. Readers in London will also be able to pick up a free copy and see the overall winning poem, ‘Summer Job as a Glacier Tour Guide’ by Joyce Zhou, displayed in the new wing of the National Maritime Museum from 20 September 2018 onwards. Attend the launch on 23 September and hear three of the winning young poets read.
