Please note that at the time Leilanie Stewart was longlisted for the Melita Hume Prize in 2014, and Joseph Robert longlisted for the Melita Hume Prize in 2015, there were no submission fees to enter.]

For those who don’t know about it, the Melita Hume prize is a poetry competition run by Eyewear Publishing for poets under 35 years old who have compiled a book-length poetry collection. This year the first place winner will get £1500 and will find out by June 2015.
