We'll delighted to announced that we will be nominating three poems from FourXFour Poetry Journal towards the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem this year.
Sixty-four poems were published in the past twelve months in our journal, and we had quite the task to select only three, we could easily have chosen so many more. Our three poets nominated are:
Chris Jenkins- 'Omagh' (Issue 16)
Lorna Shaughnessy - 'Hidden' (Issue 18)
Mel McMahon - 'Wake House' (Issue 19)
We wish them all the best of luck with prize!
Also look out for a special double issue of FourXFour being released on Poetry Day Ireland, Thursday 27th April, featuring Nathan Armstrong, Julieann Campbell, Michael Conaghan, Aine MacAodha, Willetta Fleming, Lizz Murphy, Gareth Osborne and Patrick Taggart,
