Film Poem of ‘Hare’

Wanted to share the filmpoem made by Melissa Diem of my poem ‘Hare’, which was placed in the National Poetry Competition top ten winning poems (out of 12,000 entries!) back in March. I was going through a really tough time at the beginning of the year so it was especially nice to get a phone call from Judith Palmer at the Poetry Society to tell me this amazing news.

As part of the award, the Poetry Society commissioned a number of filmmakers to make ‘filmpoems’ of the winning pieces. I really like mine and (now that I’ve joined Vimeo!) am pleased to share it here. The print version of the poem is in BOOM!, which Seren is offering with 20% discount at the minute. Let me know what you think…
