In 2007, Overland and the Malcolm Robertson Foundation joined forces to create the Overland Magazine Judith Wright Prize for New and Emerging Poets.
We are pleased to announce that in 2008 the prize money has been increased to $3000, with two minor prizes of $500.
Eligible poets are those who have not yet had a collection of their work commercially published (that is, by a publishing house with commercial distribution). A maximum of three unpublished poems is allowed per entrant. The poems will be judged by Overland’s poetry editor, Keri Glastonbury. The winning poem will be published in the magazine.
Entries, with entry form, should be sent to:
‘Overland Judith Wright Poetry Prize’
PO Box 14428
MELBOURNE VIC 8001
by Friday 7 November 2008.
Winners will be announced in Overland 194, March 2009.
More information is available at www.overland.org.au
This prize is made possible by the support of the Malcolm Robertson Foundation.
