Montreal International Poetry Prize

You may remember last year on the show when we first told you about the Montreal International Poetry Prize

It's a new poetry prize, open to poets around the world, that offers the impressive sum of $50,000 for the winning poem. 

The prize was made possible by an anonymous $50,000 catalyst donation. 

Mark Tredinnick from Australia is the first-ever winner of the prize. He won for his poem Walking Underwater.

An anthology featuring the top 50 finalists has been published. (Available from Vehicule Press or on Amazon.) 

We have two copies of the Global Poetry Anthology to give away. To enter, go to our Facebook page and tell us, who is your favourite living poet? 

Listen to Jeanette's interview with Mark and Montreal Prize co-director Asa Boxer.
