Highly Commended in Poetry Book Society’s National Student Competition

Very pleased to have been Highly Commended in Poetry Book Society ‘s National Student Competition for my poem, ‘Sandwiches’.

Judge, Jane Yeh wrote:  ‘I love how this poem crackles with life, its teen characters sparky, beguiling, and adroitly drawn. A sense of semi -thwarted hope shines through the images: ‘We want / engagement rings this big / so big we can see freedom on the other side’. A real storyteller’s eye and way with words are in evidence here.’

Many thanks to PBS & Jane Yeh, and congratulations to all the winners.
