Now in its 18th year, the Gwen Harwood Poetry Prize remembers Tasmania’s most acclaimed poet. Proudly sponsored by The Hobart Bookshop, the prize is judged by two of Australia’s finest poets, John Kinsella, the poetry editor of Island and Gig Ryan, poetry editor at The Age.
There is a first prize of $2000 and two minor prizes of $500 each will be awarded at the judges’ discretion. The winning poem will be published in Island.
