Finders Keepers makes the Ted Hughes Award shortlist!
Dr Fulminare is ridiculously jittery to announce that Finder Keepers by Harry Man and Sophie Gainsley has been shortlisted for The Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry! This incredible collaboration has been a real labour of love, and goes far beyond the average poetry collection. Harry Man has travelled around the UK to shadow conservation teams and geocache poems for nature lovers to discover. Meanwhile Sophie Gainsley’s vibrant, scurrying artwork brings Harry’s emotive, investigative poems to life. Best of all, the project continues, with future geocaches planned! Finders Keepers embodies what Sidekick Books stands for – energy, teamwork, playing with genre and format. It’s been a pleasure to work with these two talented artists. Thank you to everyone who nominated Finders Keepers for the Ted Hughes Award. We’re thrilled and touched, not least because this news has put Dr Fulminare in such rude spirits he’s doubled our rations! You can read the Poetry Society press release here!
