Melanie was a 2015 Costa Book Award Judge and we are thrilled to have her as our Poetry Judge this year.

“The Poetry Bookshop, which is owned and run by Christopher and Melanie Prince, specialises in every aspect of poetry; antiquarian, second-hand, out of print and now new publications. Opened in 1979, the Poetry Bookshop is the UK’s only bookshop dedicated to poetry and one of the longest established bookshops in the town of Hay. Titles sold at the store range from Keats, Byron and Shakespeare through to modern poets like Rupi Kaur, Luke Kennard, Rhiannon Hooson and Kate Tempest.”

Even during lockdown, the Poetry Bookshop has found lots of innovative ways to fill your poetry fix – Follow the link – https://poetrybookshop.co.uk/by-appointment/
