The winner of an award named after one of the most respected poets of the Twentieth century will receive £1,000.

The Robert Graves Prize, launched this year in collaboration between the Roehampton Poetry Centre and Wimbledon BookFest, awards the honour to the best single poem submitted.

Co-sponsored by Marcus Beale Architechts, runners-up will also receive £100 each with all three winning entries being published in POEM magazine.

The prize will be judged by Fiona Sampson and Peter Straus.

Entries must be original, written in English and unpublished at the time of submission.

The closing date for entries is August 23.
