The International Proverse Prizes for writing submitted and previously unpublished in English (may be in translation) are open for entry until June 30th.

The Proverse Poetry Prize for single poems (this is its fourth edition) also offers cash prizes and publication in the prize anthology.

Full details and entry documents are available from the Proverse website, where up to date information on the two prizes can be found as well as further photographs of prize-related events can be found.
