A Spiky Success

Oz is knocked out to have won the Hedgehog Poetry Press’s Full Fat Collection prize. His winning chapbook, The Lithium Codex, will be published by Hedgehog in Spring 2019. Writing of the collection, judge David Mark Williams said: “As soon as I started reading this collection I sensed I was in the presence of greatness. I had no doubts at all that this was the winner. These prose poems have the authority of a classic. It is not just the inventiveness of the writing but its precision. While each poem gives the impression of being improvised what impresses is how skilfully the effects are realised. It’s been such a privilege to be privy to having discovered this work and to ensure that it is going to be published.” Full details on the Hedgehog website here.
