Mairtín Crawford Award – Joint Runner-up


Humbled to take joint runner-up spot alongside Ross Thompson in the inaugural Mairtín Crawford Award. Heartfelt congratulations to a most deserving winner, Rosamund Taylor. To be considered alongside these poets, and in a shortlist of such attentive talents, is a singular privilege. My sincerest thanks to Belfast Book Festival.
