Member Paul Stephenson has been selected for the 2014/15 Book & Pamphlet Competition, as chosen by Billy Collins, who had this to say:
Funny and quite serious at the same time, these poems cast a fresh, ironic eye on contemporary life and find a wild variety of fields in which to play. The colloquial tone and satiric brilliance might make a reader wish to hear more, ideally over a pint or two.
Details of the winners’ collections will be available soon and the winning pamphlets will be launched at a reading at The Wordsworth Trust on Saturday 16th May.
Fantastic news, Paul! Well done.
