Forward Arts Foundation is a literary charity that celebrates excellence in poetry and widens its audience.
We do this through National Poetry Day, the Forward Prizes for Poetry and the Forward Book of Poetry. Click here to learn how you can join in.
The winners of our Forward Young Responses 2014 Competition have been announced as Jack Bridgford (KS3), Hugo Dodsworth (KS4) and Shukria Rezaei (KS5). See their winning entries and read more about the competition.
The Forward Prizes for Poetry 2015 will be awarded on 28 September at the Royal Festival Hall.
The jury, chaired by writer and performer A L Kennedy, includes three poets - Colette Bryce, Carrie Etter, Warsan Shire - and the BBC producer Emma Harding. Stand by for their shortlists in June.
