The Ted Hughes Award for 2015 winner announced | 11-Apr-16

Congratulations to David Morley, winner of the Ted Hughes Award for 2015, for his collection The Invisible Gift: Selected Poems. The judges Jackie Kay, Andrew McMillan and Ali Smith said of the work:

"The Invisible Gift is the perfect title for this collection, as it was simply a gift to read. Like opening a box of fireworks; something theatrical happens when you open its pages, and a curtain is raised on a tradition that has been overlooked. In these poems, David Morley switches forms and registers to reveal the versatility of the voices and the liveliness of the Romani culture, arguing for a tradition which has been invisible and silent."
