Three poems, up to 100 lines in total, are sent to AP for assessment. Following this, feedback with be received from your mentor.

The committee is comprised Sam Wagan Watson (Qld), Dennis Haskel (WA), Jill Jones (SA), Paul Kane (US), Martin Langford (NSW), Sandra Thibodeaux (NT), John Tranter (NSW) and Christopher Wallace-Crabbe (Vic).
