Results of South Bank Poetry magazine, 2013 competition

We had a record number of entries to our competition this year and competition was very tough for all concerned. Our judge Clare Pollard has now chosen the winning poems which will appear in the next extended issue of South Bank Poetry.

Prize-Winning Poems

1st Prize   Gare du Midi    by Paul Stephenson
2nd Prize  Baristas of East London   by Sarah Gibbons

Commended Poems

Soho Hens           by Kathy Pimlott

Approximately 40 more poems will be chosen from
Clare Pollard’s longlist, to supplement the ten
prize-winning and commended poems, in an
extended , combined spring and summer issue
18 of SBP.  It will be published in the summer
and launch readings will be held in London.

We will not be publishing the longlist.
You will be contacted by 20th April if any of
your poems have been chosen. If you haven’t
been contacted by then, you can assume you
haven’t been included.

Do not be too disappointed as 544 poems were entered, and the standard
was high.  A big thankyou to everyone who
entered the competiton.  Your interest and
support is very much appreciated

    Thanks, Katherine. Do I understand correctly that the poems will appear online at some point?
