Winner of the East Anglian Book Award for Poetry

At a classy awards ceremony on Thursday night, I was thrilled when it was announced that The Print Museum had won the 2016 East Anglian Book Award for Poetry.

The cover design, based on an idea by my editor Neil Astley at Bloodaxe, and beautifully designed by Shona Branigan, won the East Anglian Writers ‘Book by the cover’ Award too.

Especially in a region so rich with fantastic writers, and many excellent books out this year, it was wonderful to have both the design and the words honoured.
