For the attention of our readers who also write poetry: Newcastle University's Centre for the Literary Arts has just announced the opening of their Flambard Poetry Prize to entries!
We are very pleased to announce the 2017 Flambard Poetry Prize, which continues to honour the achievements of Flambard Press and the inspiration of founders Margaret and Peter Lewis. Between 1990 and 2012, Flambard Press published an acclaimed range of poetry and fiction, helping to nurture many emergent and established writers regionally and nationally. It was recognised as one of the finest small independent presses in the UK.
The prize is open to poets who have not yet been published as a single author, and is open until the 31st October. This year's judges are Ellen Phethean and Rebecca Goss. If you want to find out more, follow this link.
It's great to see even more poetry-related activity so close to our Newcastle office, and good luck to our PBS members who enter!
