It is the biggest, most prestigious prize for emerging poets in Australia and it is closing very, very soon. For subscribers, entry is only $12. Non-subscribers enter at $18 but, for the duration of the competition, it’s possible to subscribe and submit at a substantially reduced rate. [Stop press: anyone who takes out a poetry subscription between now and 16 November, also goes into the draw for the major prizes in the recent Subscriberthon.] The winners will be selected by Peter Minter, Overland‘s poetry editor, and will feature in the first edition for 2014. The results of the 2012 competition are available online. Note, though: the competition closes midnight, Saturday 16 November 2013 – and this date will not be extended. Submit your entry now.
