Forward Prize for Best Single Poem

I’m pleased to say that Richard Price’s poem ‘Personality Test (with worked examples)’ first published at And Other Poems has been commended in this year’s Forward Prizes and included in the annual anthology. Here is Richard’s poem on this site.

This is the third time that a poem first published at AOP has been commended in the Forward Prizes. Other commended poems were, in 2016, Emily Blewitt’s poem ‘This is not a rescue’ and in 2018, Sarah Hymas’ poem Whale-boned Corset and Other Relics.

More details about this year’s shortlists at The Forward Arts Foundation website.

Congratulations to Richard – read more about him on his website – and to all commended and shortlisted poets and publishers.
