Peter Porter Poetry Prize 2014

             Peter-Porter-portrait-1-web

Australian Book Review is delighted to announce the four poems  shortlisted for the 2014 Peter Porter Poetry Prize, now in its tenth year. They are:

‘Absence’ by Elizabeth Allen
‘Scenes from the Olivet Discourse’ by Nathan Curnow
VFGA  ’ by Paul Kane
‘Arrival Platform Humlet’ by Jessica L. Wilkinson

The winner will receive $4,000; the other poets will each receive $500. Our judges – Lisa Gorton (Poetry Editor of ABR) and Felicity Plunkett – chose the quartet from almost 700 poems.

The winner will be announced at a special ceremony at Boyd on Wednesday, 7 May (6 pm). Three of our poets will read their works (Paul Kane, based in the United States, has a very good excuse).

If it’s anything like last year’s Porter ceremony, when Kevin Brophy and Jessica L. Wilkinson herself gave a bravura reading of Dan Disney’s daunting shortlisted poem, ‘Procedures in Aesthetics’, it will be a hoot.
