"The Bridport Prize is one of the most prestigious poetry awards in the UK, and I was thrilled and delighted - as well as amazed - when I got a phone call to say that I'd won. Writing is a lonely business, always with that uneasy feeling that the finished product may not be worth the effort expended on it. So winning a competition like the Bridport is a huge boost to the confidence, a validation and acknowledgement of your work that encourages you to go on writing. It's both a humbling and enriching experience.  Entering competitions has always been a 'road travelled in hope' rather than with any expectation of arriving at the finishing line. So to other writers I'd say - go for it. You may just win!"
