The Crossing: 2023 Newcastle Poetry Prize

Hunter Writers Centre

For over 30 years, the Newcastle Poetry Prize has championed Australian poets and their craft.

The Newcastle Poetry Prize stands out in Australia as it embraces the long form poem, allowing poets to explore their craft across up to 200 lines. This distinctive aspect presents a challenge for poets to skilfully sustain their work, carefully balancing tone, pace, and rhythm to captivate readers throughout the journey.
