Forward Prize

forwardThe Forward Prizes are this year allowing submission of single poems from online magazines, something that’s always been excluded. They are obviously testing the water cautiously – they only allowed the first 20 submissions. I’m delighted that, through some frantic communication with poets, Antiphon’s submission has been accepted. OK, we had to rush, rather than choose in a measured way like the print mags, but it’s a start! I’m confident that the quality of submissions from online magazines will easily rival that of the print mags. It will be very interesting to see if any are shortlisted.
