The 2013 Montreal International Poetry Prize is now open. Our new editorial
board of ten poets from across the globe will select approximately 80 poems for
our longlist and some 50 poems for the 2013 Global Poetry Anthology. This is a
great chance to have some of the world's most experienced and active poets read
your work. For those among you who are already established, this is an excellent
opportunity to call attention to your latest efforts.

before March 31 and the entry fees are lower. This year’s prize judge is Don
