Shortlisting for the Blake Poetry Prize 2010

Published : Tuesday, August 17, 2010 | Label:

My poem “Song of (Someone Like) My Self” has been shortlisted for this year’s Blake Poetry Prize.

The Blake—long a prize for visual art, and since 2008 a prize for poetry, too—honours the mystic, engraver, painter and poet William Blake and encourages poets to engage in the ancient business of spiritual inquiry.  (My poem “Have You Seen” won the prize in its first year, and it’s a delight to be in the running again.)

The judges this year were Anna Kerdijk Nicholson, Ron Pretty and Les Wicks

The prize is announced at the National Art School Gallery in Darlinghurst on 2 September in Sydney.

The full shortlist:

“Perfume” by Margaret Collett

“Quince” by Peter Comino

“All Our Pretty Ones” by B.R. Dionysius

“From ‘Still Lifes’” by Dan Disney

“Adrift” by Brook Emery

“Encounter in Manhattan” by Stephen Leeder

“Above, Below” by Earl Livings

“Marian Vespers” by Homer Reith
