The Blue Nib Chapbook Contest The Blue Nib Chapbook Contest series started in Autumn 2017 and is now in its fourth round. The raison d’être for the series was to discover exciting talent in the poetry world. The contest gives established & emerging poets the opportunity to get their work in front of a well known poet and have it judged by a credible authority. To date we have had Michael Blackburn, Kevin Higgins and for our last round Vivien Jones. We are very excited to have the wonderful Helen Mort judging this round of the contest.
