His own poems appear in Carcanet’s New Poetries VIII: An Anthology.  His current pamphlet is Woodsong and The Rake is forthcoming in May 2022. He has recently edited Edna St Vincent Millay: Poems and Satires.

We are delighted to announce that the 1st prize in our Open Poetry Competition will again this year be £1000! Second and third prizes will also remain at £500 and £250 respectively. Plus £100 for a local poet.
