The Sarah Broom Poetry Prize is inspired by the spirit of imagination, freedom and determination that marked Sarah’s life and work. The prize aims to provide recognition for a New Zealand poet and a financial contribution to support their work.

The prize will be awarded annually, based on 6-8 unpublished poems, to encourage and support the recipient in the completion of a full manuscript of original poetry.

Entries for the Sarah Broom Poetry Prize open on 3 February 2014 and close 14 March 2014 and the inaugural Sarah Broom Poetry Prize will be announced at the Auckland Writers & Readers Festival in May 2014.

Shortlisted poets will be invited to read their poetry at a specific poetry event at the Festival.

Fundraising for the Poetry Prize is now underway and will determine the final amount awarded to the recipient. If you would like to contribute to the fund please make a donation with your credit card or internet banking via PayPal.

If you would like more information about donating please emailtrustfund@sarahbroom.co.nz
