Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize

The Great Fogginzo’s Cobweb was expecting to celebrate a particular event with three guests posts. The headliner was to be Kim Moore. Well, this puts the cherry on the cake, the angel on the tree and the star in the heavens. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll be hearing from her on the cobweb before Christmas. Kim Moore, my mate and my inspiration.

A quick interruption of the 16 Days of Activism posts I’ve been doing for some happier news.

My book The Art of Falling was awarded the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize yesterday.

The Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize is awarded to a poetry book one year and a novel the next.

I’ve been in London for the last couple of days – on Wednesday evening I went for dinner with my husband and my lovely editor at Seren, Amy Wack, and her husband.

Yesterday at lunchtime we went to the Faber offices and I was presented with the prize.  It was a really lovely event – I just had to read one poem from the book.  Everyone was really friendly.

I also did an interview over the phone with The Guardian, which happened so quickly that there wasn’t much time to get nervous about it – you can read the article here
