Michael Marks Awards

A lovely event last night at the British Library, where we heard not only from all the nominated poets (even the one who couldn’t be there had a poem read out), but also from all the nominated presses. Fascinating to hear these very independent publishers outlining their philosophies, describing what they do with such integrity, humility and humour.

The poet I was backing (the fabulous Sophie Robinson) didn’t win, sadly, but I did love the work of the winner. I have his pamphlet with me now…

So, congratulations, James McGonigalMariscat have done a lovely job.
And congratulations, The Crater Press!
