Good news everyone

I am pleased to announce that I have received the Arthur Welton Award to assist materially in the composition of my third poetry collection.

OK, so my first two collections have yet to be published, but I’m grateful to the Arthur Welton Foundation – and the Society of Authors – for this act of faith.

Wealthy benefactors can make donations to the Foundation here.

I also have a long poem in PN Review 188 – out now, I think.

The image above is the obverse of a Chinese poem coin, btw, the four-character inscription of which means "good fortune, emolument (official salary), longevity and happiness".
