This past week marked marked the launch of a brand new English-language literary award, the Montreal International Poetry Prize, which will bestow $50 000 for a single poem. That’s right. Fifty grand. As well, the contest will also generate a new annual poetry anthology of the top 50 poems from around the world, edited by an international jury of editors. The lone judge of the winning poem will be the former Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom, Andrew Motion. We got in touch with the contest’s founders, Len Epp and Asa Boxer, to find out more.
