Congratulations are due to Paul Maddern and Nuala Ni Chonchuir. Strictly speaking Paul is from Bermuda, but we've adopted him in Belfast, and what's theirs is ours and vice versa. I know Paul from my days in Queen's last year and where he is just finishing off a doctorate on sound and poetry.
In Templar's words:
Templar Poetry is delighted to announce the winners of the 2009 Templar Poetry Pamphlet Prizes. The full results, including the anthology poets, and other new titles will be placed on the Templar Poetry Website on Sunday 12th July. The publication of all new pamphlets and collection will be celebrated at the Derwent Poetry Festival in late autumn.
Nuala Ni Chonchuir: 'Portrait of the Artist with a Red Car'
Paul Maddern: Kelpdings
David Morley: The Rose of the Moon
Dawn Wood: Connoiseur
A huge congrats to all the winners -and a special shout out for Nuala - yay!
