Goodland Wins Big In Wales

Speaking of awards ceremonies, a good friend of mine, poet Giles Goodland, has just won a major poetry prize - £5000, first place, for best poem in the Cardiff International Poetry Competition.  I am very pleased to see this news.  Goodland is one of the best and most significant of contemporary English poets, and hopefully this will bring his work to an ever-wider readership.  I am currently reading his Oystercatcher pamphlet.

This is good news. I agree with your assessment of Goodland, Todd. His "Spy in the House of Years" is a brilliant piece of work.
