Denise Saul Wins Geoffrey Dearmer Prize

We are delighted to announce that Rack Press poet Denise Saul has won the annual Geoffrey Dearmer Prize for the best poem in Poetry Review during 2011 from a poet who has not yet published a full length collection.  The poem, "Leaving Abyssinia" was first published in Poetry Review and is now in her Rack Press pamphlet, "House of Blue", a pamphlet which has also been recommended by the Poetry Book Society in its summer selection for 2012.  The pamphlet can be ordered online from this site.

Our picture shows Denise reading at the Rack Press launch in January this year (fellow Rack poet Michèle Roberts seated).
