Delighted to share that I've been shortlisted from over 3000 submissions for the Aesthetica Creative Writing Award this year.
The award has been described as one of the UK's most prestigious literary awards for poetry and fiction and the associated magazine has a readership of over 400,000.
My shortlisted poem Reticulum was written during my poetry residency at the University of Warwick and will be forthcoming in my next book to be published by Pindrop Press next year. But first, it will be published alongside all other shortlisted and winning work in this beautiful 2024 annual available soon. A welcome surprise after a very challenging year.
