Michael Marks Poetry Awards

Michael Marks Poetry Awards

The Michael Marks Awards are annual awards for poetry instigated in 2009.

The Michael Marks Poetry Pamphlet Award recognises a single outstanding work of poetry published in pamphlet form in the United Kingdom, including self-published works. The work should be not more than 36 pages.[1] The Michael Marks Publishers' Award recognises an outstanding UK publisher of poetry in pamphlet form. Both awards carry a prize of £5000.

The awards are organised by the British Library and the Poetry Book Society with the financial support of the Michael Marks Charitable Trust. The trust was established in 1966 by the late Lord Marks, 2nd Baron of Broughton. Since its foundation the trust has spent over £20m to assist "non-profit organisations and charities dedicated to the preservation and promotion of culture and the environment".[2]

The inaugural poetry winner was Lancaster writing teacher Elizabeth Burns for her collection "The Shortest Days" while the inaugural publishing winner was Oystercatcher Press.[3]
