“I rarely enter poetry competitions: I have published nine novels but I struggle to take myself seriously as a poet. Being recognized in the Bridport made me look at my poetry in a whole new light – a very pleasant one. Lemn Sissay’s judging comments got straight to the heart of what I aiming to do. A wonderful experience.”
