Monday Markets - The 2016 Gwen Harwood Poetry Prize - Sept 2, 2016

And here you thought I'd missed a week. Well, I'll have you know it's still mostly Monday in the rest of the world. Benefits of living in the future (aka Australia)! Island and The Hobart Bookshop are presenting the 2016 Gwen Harwood Poetry prize, which is for a single poem or linked poems totalling no more than 80 lines per submission. As with most of these kinds of prizes the entry fee is quite steep. However, the first prize is a significant chunk of money:

First Prize $2000 + publication in Island + annual domestic subscriptions* to Island, Griffith Review, Meanjin, Overland, Review of Australian Fiction, Southerly, Westerly and The Lifted Brow.

Second Prize Publication in Island + annual domestic subscriptions* to Island, Griffith Review, Meanjin, Overland, Review of Australian Fiction, Southerly, Westerly and The Lifted Brow.

Entry is $20 for non-Island subscribers and $10 for existing subscribers. The competition closes September 2. Get poeting!
