John Kinsella and Tracy Ryan Poetry Prize

The Prize is open to members of the University of Cambridge in statu pupillari. The Prize will be awarded for an original verse composition in any form, of not more than 500 lines in length. The winning poem will be published on each occasion in Salt, subject to the donor's agreement.

The Prize will be a single award of £750, though a shared prize may be awarded in the event of two equally appropriate candidates. The Prize will not be awarded if no entries are of adequate quality; it will not be awarded twice to the same person. In addition the judges may, if they wish, make honourable mention of another entry or entries of outstanding merit, with the additional possibility of publication in Salt.

The Prize will be jointly administered by the Faculty of English and Churchill College. One judge will be appointed by the Faculty and one by the College. A third judge will be a practising poet selected by the donors.

Entries should be in typescript, loose leaf, and must not bear the author's name. Four copies should be sent, together with a covering note of the name, College and residential address of the author, to the Senior Tutor, Churchill College, Cambridge, CB3 0DS. They should arrive by the end of the Lent Full Term 2006. The award of the Prize will be announced by the end of the Easter Term 2006.
