I’m so excited to have a poem shortlisted in the 2021 Bridport Prize International Creative Writing Competition out of the UK.
The Bridport attracts an amazing and diverse range of voices from around the world. Making the shortlist along with 184 other poets out of nearly 5,000 entries is, for me, an exciting first appearance in an international competition.
I can’t wait to read the top three winners as well as the ten highly commended poems once they are shared.
Shortlisted writers are listed in a PDF at the bottom of the Results page for 2021.
My selected poem, “What is a bird”, still needs to find a home to get out into the world, but it’s a huge boost to have it recognized in this way.
