The Montreal International Poetry Prize

I am delighted to announce that one of my poems has been longlisted for the prestigious Montreal International Poetry Prize! 

The shortlist of 50 finalists will be announced in November, and the final prize announcement of $50,000 will be made in December.  It will be the biggest prize ever awarded for a single poem, and the first major global literary award based on a community funding model. 

I am excited and honoured to be included in a prestigious list such as this.  You can see the poems longlisted at MONTREAL Poetry Prize , but will have to wait to hear which poem is mine, as entrants have been asked to remain anonymous until the judging process is complete.
