Reading and Deliberating

Details

We have a prestigious panel of Judges aboard. Poet Wang Ping who adjudicated the famous Griffin Poetry Prize 2013, has graciously consented to review all submissions personally in conjunction with the remaining jury members; Ranjit Hoskote, Jennifer Robertson and Veronica Golos.

We hope you are close to submitting an amazing manuscript of 5 poems (See Guidelines) as our deadline isn't very far away. While experimentation is great if you know your stuff well, winning poems are often fresh and smooth in it's usage of imageries and offer a pleasant and unconventional storytelling. Having said so, one should never compromising with their poetic standards.

Rochelle Potkar, who was our 2013 shortlist poet made it to the notice of our honourable Judge Ranjit Hoskote with her incredible submission. Ever since, Rochelle is a regular invitee at every Mumbai poetry reading sessions curated by Ranjit Hoskote and other poet dignitaries.
