Furrit!

13/09/2009

I found out this afternoon that, along with six other Salt poets, I’ve been highly commended in the Forward prize! “Summa”, from The Ambulance Box, is included in this year’s anthology The Forward Book of Poetry 2010, which is published in October. The other highly commended Salters are: Katy Evans-Bush, Luke Kennard, Andrea Porter, Anthony Joseph, Mark Waldron and Jill McDonough. Congratulations to them all!

Sian Hughes, of course, is the only Salt poet on the shortlist for the best first collection. Here’s wishing her the best for the prize itself!

    Andy, yes, thanks for being the first to tell me the glad tidings! And many congratulations to you. Your book is so good, and I can see why they chose that poem. It has incredible compression & really shows what you’re capable of.

    It’s great news for Salt – I’ve read most of the books listed, & it is an impressive list. Fingers crossed for Sîan!
