I was delighted to hear in April that I had been longlisted for The Melita Hume Poetry Prize 2015. Not long after that I got the even better news that I have made the shortlist. The competition involves submitting a 50 page (minimum) poetry manuscript to Eyewear Publishing. That was a big job, but worthwhile. Also shortlisted is fellow-Dublin poet, Michael Naghten Shanks. It was great to see another Irish poet, on the shortlist.
The winner will be announced in early June. Watch out for the profiles of each shortlisted poet on the Eyewear blog.
