The Tethers awarded London Festival Fringe New Poetry Award 2010
Last night at the Pizza Express Soho's Jazz Cafe, I was awarded the London Festival Fringe New Poetry Award for The Tethers. Judge Daljit Nagra's description of the book could not have been more appreciative--it nearly made me cry. I'll receive the £2500 cheque at another awards ceremony at the Waldorf Hilton in London on the 26th.
My thanks to all the judges and to my fellow shortlisted poets, the quality of whose work made the prize that much more dear.
