Highly commended

by Simon Collings

I have just learned that a poem I submitted to Sentinel Literary Quarterly’s 2013 poetry competition has won a ‘highly commended’ award. The poem, called Four more ways of looking at a blackbird, will be published by SLQ in the coming months.

Meanwhile Laura Jurd, the composer, has finished setting another of my poems to music. I’m expecting the score any day. The work has been commissioned for the Ligeti Quartet who plan to perform it later this year. See my earlier post about this piece.
