Here are a few poetry deadlines to inspire you, including competitions with prizes of up to $2000 for first place.
Meanjin is currently open for submissions and so is Cordite’s Gondwanaland themed issue (edited by Derek Motion); Arts Queensland Val Vallis Award for UnpublishedPoetry closes July 9 while Gwen Harwood Poetry Prize closes July 31; Best Australian Poems closes August 1 and note early submissions appreciated (edited by Lisa Gorton). The Science Poetry Prize, a new initiative taken by Australian Poetry Ltd and National Science Week, is accepting entries August 10-23.
Writers’ tip: get it out there. If it isn’t a fit for one outlet it may be for the next or the next.
