We are delighted to announce that the Frogmore Prize for 2020 will be adjudicated by poet and translator Maria Jastrzębska.
Maria has published four full-length collections of poetry, most recently The True Story of Cowboy Hat and Ingénue, and two pamphlets. She co-founded Queer Writing South and South Pole and co-edited Queer in Brighton with Anthony Luvera. Her poetry featured in the British Library project ‘Poetry Between Two Worlds’ and her drama Dementia Diaries toured nationally to sell-out audiences. Maria will read all entries for the Prize.
The 2019 Frogmore Prize was won by poet and artist Polly Walshe, who joins a long list of winners which includes Sharon Black, Tobias Hill, Mario Petrucci and Lesley Saunders, since its inception in 1987. The winner of the 2020 Prize will receive the sum of two hundred and fifty guineas (£262.50) and a two-year subscription to The Frogmore Papers. Full details are available at www.frogmorepress.co.uk/frogmore-poetry-prize/submission-details-for-frogmore-poetry-prize-2019/.
All shortlisted poems will be published in number 96 of the Frogmore Papers (September 2020).
