We are specifically looking for Trustees with skills in marketing and communications, poetry publishing, creative engagement/community building, and governance. Trustees do not have to be connected to the world of poetry, but an interest in literary creativity is vital, and we welcome approaches from those invested in other sectors in the championing of women's voices. The Foundation encourages an inclusive culture and welcomes applications to the Prize and complementary Network from all women poets, including trans women poets.
