Out of the water…

This Lost Shark will be out of the water for a few days… but before I go, here’s a couple of poetry opportunities worth exploring.

So, pens out, blue ink and let’s get the cameras rolling!

1. PressPress Chapbook Award: The PressPress Chapbook Award is for an unpublished chapbook length manuscript of poems. The winning manuscript will receive $600 and chapbook publication with PressPress. The Award will be announced in July 2010 on the PressPress site.

2. Poetry in Film Festival: Australian Poetry Centre and Palace Cinemas have teamed up to host the Poetry in Film Festival. Artists are invited to produce a short film in response to Libby Hart’s poem, The Briefcase Phenomenon. Deadline for entry is August 2, 2010.

And if you are in need of a bit of poetry in your life this weekend, why not check out Poetica’s recent feature on Gil Scott-Heron – The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.
