We’re thrilled that Judith Beveridge has been awarded the Peter Porter Poetry Prize for her work, ‘As Wasps Fly Upwards’.

On winning the prize, Judith said:

I am deeply honoured to have won the Peter Porter Poetry Prize, not only because of the high regard I have for Peter Porter’s poetry and for Australian Book Review, but also because of the very strong 2015 shortlist. I loved all the poems and was truly surprised to hear I’d won. My sincere thanks to ABR for continuing this prestigious prize, which is a great support for poets.
