TCR‘s 2nd annual Robin Blaser Poetry Award

Deadline: August 1

The contest’s judges, Miriam Nichols and Sharon Thesen, have provided a thematic statement for this year’s contest:

Throughout his writing life, Robin Blaser repeatedly turned to the sacred as a meditation on otherness: the world does not appear in his poems and essays as an economy of the Same, but as a dialogue among differences. In “Poetry and Positivisms,” he writes that “our cultural condition has a great deal to do with the nature of the sacred and that poetry of a certain order returns again and again to a discourse of cosmos with new attentions and cares.” Considering Blaser’s work on the other in the Image-Nation poems and in his essays, how might such a “discourse of cosmos” be articulated now?

Award: $500 (CAD) + publication in the Fall issue.
Fee: $35 for Canadian entries and $45 (CAD) for non-Canadian.

Maximum 8 pages per entry.

Each entry will qualify for a one-year subscription to The Capilano Review. If you already have a subscription, we will extend your subscription or sign up a friend.
