I'm really thrilled to be able to say that I've been awarded this year's Jane Martin Poetry Prize. It's an award from Girton College at Cambridge University, based on submissions of poetry portfolios. Mine included three poems: 'Swimmin,' 'Birdlasses' and 'small infinities.' You can read those poems over here.
I'll be at Girton College next Thursday (9th) for the prize-giving ceremony, where I'll be reading the poems. If you'd like to come along, details of that are over here.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xx
(PS. Tomorrow (Saturday 4th), I'll be at Waterstones in Salisbury signing copies of More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops 11am-2pm, if you're in the area and would like to say hello :) x).
