Blake Poetry Prize – closes June 8
Taking its name from William Blake, the Blake Society aims to encourage artists of disparate styles, religious and spiritual allegiances to engage in the dialogue between religion, spirituality and poetry.
The Blake Poetry Prize was established in 2008 in partnership with the NSW Writers’ Centre and sponsored by Leichhardt Council. An open poetry prize, for works of 100 lines or less, that encourages Australian poets to engage in the dialogue between religion, spirituality and poetry. Entries do not have to be pro-religion – they may be pro-religion, anti-religion, non-religiously spiritual or satirical.
Entries for the 2012 prize close on Friday June 8. Download entry form and requirements here: http://www.blakeprize.com.au/how-to-enter/entry-form
