Delighted to announce that my new pamphlet of poems, For Real, has picked up the Northern Promise Award from New Writing North, as part of the 2014 Northern Writers' Awards.

The prize is a cash fund to buy time to develop my work, writing new poems that will make up my first full-length collection of poetry.

A brilliant ceremony, and an honour to be in the company of many talented new poets and prose writers alike.
