Billy Collins will be judging the 30th annual international Poetry Business book and pamphlet competition. Entrants are invited to submit a collection of 20-24 pages of poems for the chance to win publication by Smith Doorstop, a share of £2,000, and other prizes. Four first-stage winners are selected and given the opportunity to submit a full-length manuscript to the second round of the competition, in which one of them can win book publication. The three first-stage winners will then receive pamphlet publication. All four winners will receive an equal share of the £2,000 prize money, and will have a launch reading organised by The Poetry Business and a selection of their poems published in The North magazine. The deadline is 31 January 2016. More details
