News: 2016 Forward Prize For Best Single Poem Nominations

Forward Prize Nominations 2016

The Forward Prizes, awarded annually, are some of the most prestigious awards for poetry available in the UK. Each year I nominate four of the best poems published in Neon during the previous twelve months for the Best Single Poem category – the top prize for which is £1000. The four nominees for this year are:

“Fill Your Boots” – Ian Mullins

“What Waits” – Eliza Victoria

“Elicit” – Clifford Parody

“Going Under” – Mack W Mani

Click the links above to read the poems online, or download the issue in which they appear for free. Three of the above are selected from issue forty-two, which is still available to buy in print from the issue home page. Best of luck to Ian, Eliza, Clifford and Mack – the shortlist for the prize will be announced in June.
