Fathom Prize

This morning finds me still delighted and surprised at having won the Fathom Prize for poetry last evening, with my poem 'My Neighbour's Lawn'.

Th competition, billed as Northern Lincolnshire, Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire's 'foremost literary competition', was judged by the poet Frances Leviston MA (whose anthology, Public Dream, was shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize, the Forward Prize and the Jerwood-Aldeburgh Prize).

An anthology, Fathom 10, is available from The Ropewalk, Barton upon Humber, North Lincolnshire (, price £5.
