‘I’ve been floating ever since. I’ve had many poems published in magazines and anthologies, but winning the pamphlet competition is a huge validation of my work as a whole, and a collection is something I’ve been striving for. My enormous thanks go to Mslexia and Amy Wack at Seren.’
Mara Bergman, winner of our Women’s Pamphlet Competition 2015
