Beginning in November, he will attend an immersive three days at the international Aldeburgh Poetry Festival, immediately followed by an intensive five-day rural retreat along with seven other highly talented poets early in their publishing careers.

Congratulations, Paul. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer poet.
