"Winning the Bridport Prize was an overwhelming and wonderful experience. Sometimes we can isolate ourselves as writers. The Bridport Prize introduced me to a fascinating group of people from around the world who love art and who struggle in different ways with writing, which was comforting and inspiring beyond belief. I would encourage anyone who is nervous about submitting their work to have a little faith and go for it."

Natalya Anderson, 1st prize Poetry 2014
