Last night, Overland poetry editor Keri Glastonbury presented the results of the Overland Judith Wright Poetry Prize for New and Emerging Poets, at a function jointly hosted with the Australian Poetry Centre at the historic ‘Glenfern’ property.
Thanks to everyone who attended, all the poets who entered the competition, and to the Malcolm Robertson Foundation for making the whole prize possible.
The major prize was awarded to Tim Wright. His poem is available in the newly released Overland 194, which can be purchased here. You can read Keri’s judge’s report here. The other winning poems will be published in forthcoming editions of Overland. The Overland Judith Wright Prize is intended as annual event.
