The Blue Nib Poetry Writing Contest
The Blue Nib Poetry Writing Contest 2019 round 5 €1000.00 prize fund
The Blue Nib Chapbook Contest series started in Autumn 2017 and is now in its fifth round. The raison d’être for the series was to discover exciting talent in the poetry world. The poetry writing 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 Helen Mort. We are delighted to have Canadian/UK poet Paul Sutherland judging this round of the poetry writing contest.
Paul Sutherland has published eleven collections of his own poetry and edited several others. His latest book, New and Selected Poems (2017) contains a compendium of that work. Paul is founding editor of Dream Catcher, a popular international poetry journal which is now in its 35th issue, Paul runs creative writing workshops, seminars and writers’ retreats.
