Poetry of Science 2020

Congratulations to our 2020 finalists!

We are delighted to announce the finalists of the 2020 Poetry of Science competition. We received 600 poems and the judges were very impressed with the quality of the entries. Thank you to all of our poets who made the job of picking these top poems so very difficult!

Click on the poem titles below to enjoy reading the poems and please vote for your favourite. Once you vote, your choice will be recorded and you will be redirected to this page. You may vote for another poem, but your vote for the same poem twice will not be recorded.





To see the finalists performing their poems, book up for the Poetry of Science celebratory event on Saturday 17 October at 11am.

We are grateful to Oxford Brookes University, Science Oxford, Ivy Kids, Nosy Crow, John Adams and OX Magazine for supporting this competition.
