Red Hand Books are please to announce it has entered Jack Alun’s stunning new poetry collection for the Forward Arts Foundation Felix Dennis Prize for Best First Collection. This prize is sponsored by the Estate of Felix Dennis and offers the winner a prize of £5,000.
We felt Jack Alun’s poetry collection goes beyond the clichéd and the picturesque to prise out the raw, timeless and human elements in plain and compelling language. Behind the characters is a landscape that is at once stark, familiar and impersonal offering jewel after jewel of fascinating snapshots into the lives of the southern French village Jack Alun calls home. https://www.redhandbooks.co.uk/vertical-horizons/
