quickest turnaround - just 5 wks from deadline (Oct 20th) to contacting winners (Nov 24th), tying up your best poems for the shortest possible time
fairest judging - every poem is read by both our distinguished poetry-editor judges, Neil Astley & Amy Wack, no sifters, no shortlisters
prize-winners reading - the chance to read your prize-winning poem at the Troubadour alongside Neil, Amy & your fellow prize-winner poets at our (Dec 1st) prize-celebration;
going forward - the top three poems are forwarded annualy to 'the Forward': Tim Nolan, our 2012 3rd-prize-winner, is now on the five-poet shortlist for 2014 Forward Prize for Best Single Poem
