Rack Press Poet Shortlisted for Major Award

Congratulations to Christopher Reid whose Rack Press pamphlet Airs and Ditties of No Man's Land (2011) is one of six shortlisted titles for the 2011 Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry.  The text was set to music by leading contemporary British composer Colin Matthews last year and received its world première at the BBC Proms in August.

The winner will be announced at the end of this month and we are keeping our fingers crossed for Christopher.
