The New Quarterly is proud to announce The Nick Blatchford Occasional Verse Contest

$1,000 for one glorious poem

Sponsored by TNQ editor Kim Jernigan and family in celebration of the man who sparked their love of poetry, this contest is for poems written in response to an occasion, personal or public – poems of gratitude or grief, poems that celebrate or berate, poems that make of something an occasion or simply mark one. Another $1,000 in prize money will be distributed as the judges fancy. The best of what we see will be published in The New Quarterly at our usual rates, and posted on our website.

Deadline: Postmarked February 28, 2012

Entry fee: $40 for up to 2 unpublished poems, $5 each for additional poems. Submissions include a one-year subscription (or extension) to The New Quarterly, one of Canada’s liveliest literary magazines.
