To celebrate the launch of 52 Poems, Times Higher Education has some great prizes to give away in an exclusive competition.
One winner will receive a set of six Faber 80th anniversary poetry hardbacks, celebrating the work of T.S. Eliot and Sylvia Plath, among others.
Four runners-up will each receive a Faber limited-edition Poetry Essentials box set, featuring 10 classic paperbacks by key 20th-century poets.
Identify a website that could most benefit from the addition of this poetry widget and explain why, in jest or in earnest, in no more than 100 words.
• The winning entries will be published on the Times Higher Education website at the end of June 2009.
• Employees of TSL Education and their family members are not eligible.
• Winning entries will be chosen by the editor, whose decision is final.
