Okay – I still haven’t convinced anyone I’m worthy of a pamphlet but at least this time I made it to the “narrowed down” long list (it’s the list between the full long list and the shortlist). This means one poem at least will make it into the Cinnamon Press anthology The Visitors (2010), although I don’t know which one.

The prize was split between two poets whose work I’ve not come across: Anne Caldwell and Sally Douglas. But I’ll be looking out for their work now.
