I am so very nice

April 21, 2015

Why that self praise? I am about to share the details of a wonderful poetry prize currently on offer with all readers:

http://www.canberra.edu.au/about-uc/competitions-and-awards/vcpoetryprize

First prize is $15,000 for one poem of up to 50 lines, and entry is $20. It is open to everyone in the world who writes English and has a credit card with at least $20 left on it. That may exclude quite a number of poets, admittedly, but a few may qualify. There’s a bit over a month before the prize closes. Obviously, there will be quite a few entries!

Pick up pen, tablet or crayon and write. Or enter a poem that you have been too lazy to send in to a journal. Do it or be beaten by this rabbit:

I am hoarding a poem for the competition like Gollum with the Ring. It just requires a bit more polishing.

Good luck!

  1. Certainly a generous prize!

  2. Wow, amazing. And yes, you ARE nice. But not just because of this post.

      Thank you Michelle. This comment gives me the opportunity to use a word I have never used before, except in regard to oysters…

      Shucks.

      You should enter, if you have time to write a poem.
