Poetry 2017 - Mary-Jane Holmes

“Writing poetry, writing anything at all, is mostly a solitary process, hours of what seems like drumming fingers in the dark. To have won the Bridport Poetry Prize has brought a slant of light to that process, a fragile but tangible sense of confidence to continue discovering and working with the form. I have a debut collection coming out soon which would never have come to fruition without the boost this honour bestowed on me. I would say to anyone who is thinking of entering - just do it - who knows where it might lead you and your writing.”
