The Morning Star Award for Protest in Poetry 2013

VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED

Thank you to everyone who made a nomination. We'll see you at the Stoke Newington Literary Festival on Saturday when the winner will be announced.

Welcome to the inaugural Morning Star Award for Protest in Poetry!

The Morning Star is the only English-language socialist daily newspaper in the world, and the only newspaper in the UK owned by its readership. Every Thursday it publishes Well Versed - one of the very few national platforms for political poetry - which frequently lends its support to the increasing number of writer-led projects which have an issue at their core, or protest as their aim.

Please nominate whatever you think has made the biggest contribution to "political" or "protest" poetry over the past 12 months. There are no categories this year, so nominate anything from an anthology, collection or website, to an individual poet, publisher or editor.

The winner will be announced at the Stoke Newington Literary Festival, full event details here: facebook.com/events/555707191148934/
