Wigtown Poetry Prize


I think I can now reveal the reason for my visit to Wigtown: I have won the 2011 Wigtown Poetry Prize. This was completely unexpected (so much so that I had even forgotten which poem I had entered when they emailed me to notify me that I'd won). We had been planning to go to the Wigtown Book Festival anyway, so to have go in an official capacity - as an author (I was given an Author Pass, which got me into David Vann's reading free) made the whole experience twice as good. You can read my winning poem by clicking the link above.
