I’ve won prizes and been placed in competitions. My poem, ‘January’, won 1st prize in The Frogmore Poetry Prize 2015; I was a prizewinner in the Bridport 2010 and 2016 when I also won the Dorset Award; Winchester Writers Conference; Ottakar’s; and shortlisted in various others including Mslexia.
As well as writing for adults, I also write poetry and fiction for children.
I was the profiled poet for South 43 in which poet Paul Hyland wrote a profile of my poetry and selected 17 poems to include in this publication.
I’ve given readings, for example at Salisbury Arts Centre, at various launches of South magazine, for Cattistock Poets events and as a member of the ‘Seven’ poetry group. You can view a reading I gave at the launch of South 43 at SOUTH poetry magazine.
You can read some of my poems published in South issues 31,40 and 41 online at the Southbank Centre Poetry Library.
