A worldwide competition, open to all.
Send five pages of poetry. You are welcome to send previously published but erbacce must also see some unpublished work. Your work will be judged anonymously.
The outright winner will be given a publishing contract with erbacce press who will publish a perfect-bound collection of the winner's book labelled 'Winner of the erbacce-prize for poetry 2019'. They will pay all costs including the legal registering of the book and supplying copies to the major libraries and of course to the author. The book will be sold through their sales/shop pages and the poet will be paid 20% royalties.
Two runners-up will also be considered and they will win either a perfect bound book or a high quality chap-book under similar terms as the winner.
Four other poets will be chosen to be the 'Featured Poet' in each of the quarterly copies of in-house journal 'erbacce' which means that one half of the journal will be devoted to interviewing them and displaying/publishing their work.
