Prize Day at the Lakeland Book of the Year Awards 2019 BOOKENDS AWARD FOR POETRY AND LITERATURE.

Here we are, Kerry, Kim and I at the Lakeland Book of the Year awards, celebrating our win on behalf of the 93 brilliant poets whose work was published last year in THIS PLACE I KNOW. The judges praised the high standard and range of poems in the anthology. Hunter Davies recommended it as an ideal holiday read and said how amazed he was to find so much good poetry being written in Cumbria today. It was a tremendous day. We were very proud. Congratulations and thank you to all the poets who contributed so generously to the book.
