The 2015 Hollick Arvon Caribbean Writers Prize will be awarded to an emerging writer of poetry. The submission deadline is September 30, 2014 at 6:00pm. To be eligible for entry, a writer must: be of Caribbean birth or citizenship, living and working in the Anglophone Caribbean and writing in English; be over the age of 18 by 30 September, 2014; have had at least four poems published in magazines, journals, anthologies, or websites with editorial oversight; and not have previously published a full-length collection of poems with a commercial publishing house (a previous self-published collection does not affect eligibility).
The Hollick Arvon Caribbean Writers Prize is an annual award which allows an emerging Caribbean writer living and working in the Anglophone Caribbean to devote time to advancing or finishing a literary work, with support from an established writer as mentor. It is sponsored by the Hollick Family Charitable Trust and jointly administered by the non-profit organisation the Bocas Lit Fest and the creative writing charity Arvon.
