Newcastle Poetry Prize Results

Received the Newcastle Poetry Prize results this week in a nifty CD version with the anthology contained in PDF versions. It’s a nice idea; and the poems are easy to access and read in this format.

Peter Kirkpatrick’s winning poem is a delight; a funny, lively meditation on the non-joys of a walk in the bush.

The results of the Open Section were:

First place: ‘Bucolic Plague or This Eco-Lodge My Prison’ by Peter Kirkpatrick
Second Place: ‘Cast’ by Lucy Dougan
Third Place: ‘The Glorious Triptych of My Tongue’ by Christine Paice
Commendation in the Open Section: ‘Macao’ by Christopher Kelen
