Forward Prize Short List

22 Jul 2010

Abegail Morley's  How to Pour Madness into a Teacup  (Cinnamon Press) has been short-listed for the 2010 Forward Prize, for Best First Collection.

A compelling first collection from a poet whose exploration of mental illness is acutely observed, wry, poignant, dark and humane. Deceptively simple poems are layered with precise observations and meaning that resonates long after reading. Lucid and accessible, this is poetry that takes risks with stunning results.
