I was commended by Heidi Williamson in The Poetry Society Stanza Competition 2020 for my poem, Hear Her Life and in 2021 I have been shortlisted in the FPM-Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine for my poem Comfort Always in The Cheshire Prize for Literature (Daljit Nagra) for Three Lockdown Days and my poem Dharma Without Dogma was listed in the Fish Poetry Prize by Billy Collins.

I was shortlisted by Will Harris in The Rialto Pamphlet Competition 2020 for my collection The Presence of Absence (www.therialto.co.uk/pages/2020/10/06/the-rialto-open-pamphlet-competition-2020-results/). 

" Such an impressively sustained study of Alzheimer’s, which makes powerful use of a variety of forms. I found ‘Your Front Door’ a particularly affecting evocation of being “locked in/ and locked out./ An alarm on both sides/ your wired sentry.” Little details – like the indented couplet in ‘The Avalon Plum Tree’ – carry such emotional heft. This is empathetic, “straight in the eye”, unsentimental but very moving writing." Will Harris.
