Vote for the IS&T November 2018 Pick of the Month


With three first timers to IS&T – Gopal Lahiri, Anna Milan & Skendha Singh – and three poets who have been shortlisted at least once before – Peter Daniels, Beth McDonough & Andrew Turner – the Pick of the Month shortlist for November 2018 promises to be a fascinating one.

The shortlisted poems have either been chosen by Helen and Kate or received the most attention on social media. Do take the time to go through them below (or click on ‘Vote for your November 2018 Pick of the Month′ in the Categories list to your right on the screen.)

Voting is now closed. November’s Pick of the Month will be announced Thursday 13th December at 4pm BST.

The winner each month will be sent a £10 book giftcard or, if preferred, a donation of the same amount will be made to a chosen charity. In the event of the winner being from outside the UK mainland, we will make every effort to provide a reasonable alternative. All shortlisted poetry Picks, provided they remain unpublished and meet other eligibility criteria, will be considered as IS&T submissions for the annual Forward Prize for Best Single Poem. (‘Frequency Violet’ by Kate Edwards was a Pick of the Month for November 2017 and was Highly Commended by the 2018 judges. It features in The Forward Book of Poetry 2019.)
