Medical verse

The 2018 Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine is inviting international entries in two categories: Open and Health Professional Awards. In each category there are prizes of £1,000, £500 and £250. Winning poems will be published online, and in an anthology.

The competition is for an original, unpublished poem on a medical subject, up to fifty lines. The writer’s name must not appear on the manuscript. Proof of health profession-related employment is required from entrants in the Health Professional category. Poems may be entered online or by post. If entering by post, put ‘Open’ or ‘Health Professional’ in the top right hand corner to indicate the category and include a separate sheet with full contact details and the title and first line of the poem.
