The Best Australian Poems 2013

The deadline for submissions is 1 August 2014, but early submission would be appreciated. Please send a maximum of three poems – completed or published since 1 August 2013, to Geoff Page bestaustralianpoems@blackincbooks.com

Submissions should be able to be enjoyed by ‘general readers’ who don’t necessarily read much poetry — as well by those dedicated ones who do.

The editor will also be reading through the relevant journals and newspapers and collections published between 1 August  2013 and 1 August 2014.

Line count: Since the editor intends to represent Australian poetry widely, length is restricted to approximately 70 lines.

Format: Poems should be forwarded in a single .doc attachment. There is no official entry form. Please include your name and contact details as well as publication details for any poems already published (must have been later than 1 August 2013).

The editor’s selections will be announced on this website in October 2014.

Questions regarding submissions should be directed to assistant@blackincbooks.com

Black Inc. will pay a flat $40 for permission to reproduce the poem. This would include any relevant GST and any monies you might be contracted to pay to another publisher when the poem is reproduced.
