Big money for a poem, out of Montreal... does anyone recall the 2011 winner? Pity, as they won $50,000 for their poem.
This from the press release:
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.
We think you’ll
agree that the 2013 Editorial Board is smashing: Mary Dalton (Canada), Keki
Daruwalla (India), Kwame Dawes (Ghana/Jamaica), Kendel Hippolyte (St. Lucia),
Medbh McGuckian (Ireland), Sean O'Brien (United Kingdom), Niyi Osundare
(Nigeria), Robyn Sarah (Canada), Nicolette Stasko (USA/Australia), and Chase
The prize is $20,000 this year—still very substantial for
a poem of no longer than 40 lines. The deadline is May 15 but get your poems in
before March 31 and the entry fees are lower. This year’s prize judge is Don
