Wilfred Owen Poetry Award

The Wilfred Owen Association presents a biennial Poetry Award to honour a poet for a sustained body of work that includes memorable war poems.

Due to the pandemic, the Poetry Award was halted, but we look forward to announcing a new recipient in 2024.

If you would like to help sponsor the Award, please contact the Chair (woa@1914-18.co.uk)
