“Being Highly Commended in the Bridport Prize 2017 has really helped my confidence in thinking of myself as a writer. It’s all very well talking to yourself as you whittle away at the words on the page —it is when someone answers that the magic happens. Furthermore, on hearing about my award, someone put my name forward (their words: ‘I hope you realise how big a deal this prize is’) and I am now poet-in-residence on a new project: an exciting, provocative collaboration involving artists, academics, politicians and thinkers. So if hesitating about that entry, you just never know where it might lead”.
