The Young Poet Laureate programme is open to poets aged between 21 – 30, living in a London borough. The advisory panel will consider all applications. An initial shortlist of 15 applicants will be invited to a workshop selection day. From this group of 15, six finalists will then be invited to take part in a week-long residential workshop. The selection panel will choose the next Young Poet Laureate for London from this final six.
