Winner of the Poetry Book Award 2020
1st Prize – Tickling The Dragon by Jocelyn Simms is an important piece of work, both historically and artistically. Uncomfortable reading but should be essential for everyone. Although only a short volume each poem is a masterpiece, full of subtle references. From the first poem;
‘…a boy, A brilliant boy.
…brighter than a thousand suns.’
