CRASHAW PRIZE FOR 1st POETRY BOOKS
OK, I seem to have blog fever today. Must stop posting... It's actually all to do with procrastination...
Anyway, another great initiative from Salt: The Crashaw Prize for the publication of début collections of poetry.
The Crashaw Prize will be awarded to up to six new writers each year. (SIX!!) Authors must reside in the UK or Ireland, the USA, or Australia and New Zealand. Winners of the Prize will be published simultaneously in the UK, USA and Australia each summer.
‘We want to continue to support new writing talent, but more than this, to draw attention to really first rate collections from poets both young and old,’ says Salt director Chris Hamilton-Emery.
