A social site for poets in Sydney.
With regret I'm announcing that SydneyPoetry.com won't be running the Sydney Poetry Prize this year.
The inaugural prize was a great success last year, a lot of fun to conduct, and it was something we had obviously hoped to continue.
However, like many ventures of this kind, the site is run by a small number of people in their spare time.
Although the work required behind the scenes for something of this nature is in reality modest, with family and work commitments spare time is in short supply. Something has had to give way. Sadly the Sydney Poetry prize this year has not been something we could put on properly, and it really is something that should be done well if it's done at all.
I know this will sadden many enthusiastic contributors to the site, and I apologise for the disappointment.
I'm hopeful the prize is something we return to in a more sustainable way in future years.
In the meantime I hope you continue to enjoy what Sydney Poetry offers.
