The results of the 2017 Judith Wright Poetry Prize were announced yesterday, and I was happy to discover that my poem ‘Hot Clouds’ was highly commended.
Established in 2007, this prize brings attention to emerging poets, who have published no more than one collection of poems.
Congratulations to the winner Evelyn Araluen, and to all the shortlisted poets. There were 1000 entries, apparently, which means the competition was fierce!
You can read the first, second and third prize winning poems in the March edition of Overland.
And you can read ‘Hot Clouds’ as soon as I publish my first collection (which should only take another forty or so years…)
