It's Official!

Here it is in black and white, well pink and brown! Very pleased to be alongside such good company, particularly the very talented Richie McCaffery! I'm hoping to make it down to the shortlist reading in London in September where the winner will be announced. You can read more about the shortlisted poets here.

Poetry prize!!

So I can finally reveal that my first full-length poetry collection, Tree Language, has been short-listed for the Melita Hume Poetry Prize!! The prize is £1000 plus publication by Eyewear Publishing headed up by the Canadian poet and editor, Todd Swift.
The winner will be announced in September but it's very nice to be short-listed! 
I'm also pleased to have a poem in the next edition of the gorgeous Glasgow-based Gutter Mag!
