Event Details

This poetry prize remembers Cambridge graduate, Olga Kenyon, (Aryamati), who had a rich career involving teaching, lecturing and writing. She was a well respected non fiction author, documenting and researching the history of women’s writing and had eight books published. As a keen poet she won the North West Libraries poetry award in 2016 and her poem about Alderley Edge was displayed on the city’s trams.

​This prize seeks poets who write for social change and peace. The prize represents that which Aryamati held dear: reading widely, writing to her loved ones from across the globe by postcard and seeking critical feedback on her work, constantly aiming to improve her craft.
