Gregory O’Donoghue international poetry prize

UPDATE 3 Oct 2012 – entering this comp (with rather good prizes) is a great way to support the Munster Literature Centre, which does excellent work to support literature, employing both prose writers and poets from around the world in its events and publications.

The Munster Literature Centre’s international poetry prize for a single poem, named in honour of the late Gregory O’Donoghue, is open until 15 December. An entry fee of €5 is payable, and prizes are as follows:

  • 1st Prize €1000, publication in Southword and a trip to Cork, Ireland
  • 2nd Prize €500 & publication in Southword
  • 3rd Prize €250 & publication in Southword

Southword is a quality international literary journal published by the Munster literature centre. It has changed form being a paper-based to an online journal but still has the same high production vales you would expect of a print journal, with every author getting the chance to proof their work. The 2013 judge for the competition is Thomas McCarthy. Entries close 15 December.
