I’m really rather proud to be able to announce the winners of our second White Label First Collection Competition.
If you remember the aim was to find three, quite brilliant first collections to be published by the Hedgehog Poetry Press.
We were looking for something special and it was a horrible process even to get it down to a short list of six, all of whom could easily have made the final three.
In the end, I’m pleased to say that I decided to blow the budget (as though we had one) and am in fact inviting all of the Six Shortlisted Poets to have their collection published as a pamphlet by the Hedgehog Press.
So congratulations to:
- Francoise Chouinard
- Gaynor Kane
- Leung Rachel Ka Yin
- Michal Choiński
- Sue Norton, and
- Vicky Allen
…who I hope you will enjoy reading in the near future.
I’d like to thank everybody who entered the competition, the standard was, as ever, quite incredible.
