Head on over and have a look at the details here
I have Scott-Patrick’s chapbook (2009 winner) and it does, as the site says, show originality and some great experimentation among it’s keen insights. My favourite piece so far is torculus: at night/pedestrians are a/dirge, a low sad/throng drunk &/hollow with fun
At a material level, the chapbook itself is in A6 format – which I think makes it beautiful and portable – I love the idea of poetry being so intimate in its printed form, something you can have on you wherever you are.
