[Updated 15 August 2018: At the time this post was written in 2015, the Melita Hume Prize was free to enter. In 2018 there is now a submission charge. Please note that at the time Leilanie Stewart was longlisted for the Melita Hume Prize in 2014, and Joseph Robert longlisted for the Melita Hume Prize in 2015, there were no submission fees to enter.]

 

This week my poet and writer hubby, Joseph Robert, received word that his poetry collection has been longlisted for the Melita Hume poetry prize 2015. It’s obvious that as one half of a writing couple I’m super proud of him, but the news deserves a space here too!

For those who don’t know about it, the Melita Hume prize is a poetry competition run by Eyewear Publishing for poets under 35 years old who have compiled a book-length poetry collection. This year the first place winner will get £1500 and will find out by June 2015.
