Hawthornden Fellowship 2013

I'm delighted to say that I've been awarded a Hawthornden Fellowship for 2013. This will give me a month's retreat to focus on nothing but my poems. Invaluable.

The RSPB/Rialto Nature Poetry Competition

One of my poems, 'Sea Change', has been awarded third prize in the RSPB/Rialto Nature Poetry Competition. It'll be published, I'm also very happy to say, in the next issue of The Rialto.

I'm grateful to the judges, Andrew Motion and Mark Cocker, and to Michael Mackmin of The Rialto.

Look out for a blog post on nature poetry in the near future...
