Jack Cooper Commended in Timothy Corsellis Prize 2019

The Timothy Corsellis Prize was set up in memory of the young poet Timothy Corsellis, both as a memorial and an encouragement to others to explore the often overlooked field of Second World War poetry.

Jack’s commended poem, Gold Beach, drew from the life and work of Keith Douglas, who died shortly after taking part in the Normandy Invasion.
