Reminders: Manuscript prize, and Andy Jackson book launch

Three days. That’s how long poets have left to send their entries into the Whitmore Press Manuscript Prize for 2014.

We accept entries postmarked up to and including the deadline of Friday 29 August. We’ve already received a huge number of submissions this year, and look forward to being flooded in the final days.

Click here for guidelines and entry form.

And a reminder that the launch of the thin bridge, written by last year’s prize winner, Andy Jackson, is just a week later:

Collected Works bookshop
First Floor, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston Street, Melbourne
Friday 5 September, 6pm for 6.30 start

Renowned poet and professor in Creative Writing at the University of Melbourne, Kevin Brophy, will do the launch honours. If you’re in Melbourne, we hope to see you there!
