So, the literary journal that’s my blood, sweat and tears, The Eloquent Orifice, has been invited to participate in Sing Lit Station’s inaugural Hawker Prize for Southeast Asian Poetry!
The Prize seeks to reward the best poems published by a Southeast Asian literary journal/publication in 2017.
The winning works will be awarded $1500, $700 and $300 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place respectively. Honourable Mentions, if any, will not be awarded a cash prize. The results of the Hawker Prize will be announced in March 2018.
As Editor-in-Chief, I will be considering EO-published poems for submission to the Prize. Judges for the Prize are Bernice Chauly (Malaysia), Olin Monteiro (Indonesia) and Ng Yi-Sheng (Singapore).
(I’m very excited! Now to get to work reviewing all EO-published poetry!)
