MSt tutor Jamie Mckendrick’s “The Years” has been shortlisted for the 2020 Michael Marks Awards for Poetry Pamphlets.
From the announcement
“The judges admired these poems for their formal accomplishment, quiet erudition, variety of theme and engaging introspection. But, beyond that, it was the complex and various interplay between the poems and McKendrick’s own ink and watercolour pictures that marked this pamphlet out as being a truly singular achievement. Reader and viewer become caught up in the profound similarities and differences there are between poem and picture; they also become transfixed by subtle, sometimes sombre, hued world the two of them create.”
