LIVEwire Shortlisted for The Ted Hughes Award & Shortlisted for 'Best Spoken Word Performer' Saboteur Awards 2017

LIVEwire features brand new work and live material from literary childhood memoir Springfield Road (Unbound), Fishing in The Aftermath – Poems 1994-2014 (Burning Eye) Under The Pier (Nasty Little Press) and The Good Immigrant (Unbound)

From the Ted Hughes judges:
"LIVEwire captures the best of a live presence – at turns moving, powerful and unflinching – which is hard for an award to recognise. It provides a gateway to poetry that is too easily dismissed as ‘spoken word’, but is an essential part of our poetry culture."
