Matrix Magazine: Robert Kroetsch Award

Matrix Magazine are thrilled to have Karen Solie as their judge for the Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry! Karen is a Griffin Prize-winning poet who recently released her Selected Poems in the United Kingdom. She is one of Canada's greatest living poets and we are so lucky to be working with her.
The winner of the Robert Kroetsch Award wins a trade paperback publishing contract, a 500 dollar advance, and has their book published and distributed by one of North America's most respected literary presses. The Robert Kroetsch Award is without a doubt the best opportunity for emerging poets in Canada!
Invisible Publishing and Matrix Magazine are pleased to bring you the 2015 Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry.
The prize is awarded annually to the best poetry manuscript by an emerging Canadian writer (a writer who has published two books or fewer). Each year the winning manuscript is selected by an established poet in co-operation with Matrix Magazine and Invisible Publishing's Snare Imprint.

Her second, Modern and Normal, was shortlisted for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry. Her poetry, fiction and non-fiction have appeared in numerous North American journals. She is a native of Saskatchewan and now lives in Toronto.
The deadline is January 31, 2015.
