Event Details

Supported by Arts Council England, Poetry London is unique among major UK poetry magazines in that it is independent of any owner, poetry organisation or publishing house. It is run by an editorial team headed by Ahren Warner who, as Poetry Editor, is the most recent in a line of distinguished poet/editors including Pascale Petit, Maurice Riordan and Colette Bryce.

The judge of the Poetry London Clore Prize 2019 is Sasha Dugdale. She is a poet, translator and current Writer-in-Residence at St John’s College Cambridge. She has published four collections of poetry, the most recent of which is Joy, published by Carcanet in 2017. In the same year she was awarded a Cholmondeley Award for Poetry. Dugdale translates poetry and plays from Russian. She is currently working on translations of Maria Stepanova’s poems for publication by Bloodaxe in 2019, and her prose for publication by Fitzcarraldo in 2020. Sasha is former editor of Modern Poetry in Translation and co-editor of the international anthology Centres of Cataclysm (Bloodaxe, 2016).
