Jane Lovell wins The Gingko Prize

We’re delighted that ATG poet (among a number of presses!), Jane Lovell, won this year’s Gingko Prize which was announced earlier this month. Jane’s ATG pamphlet, Metastatic, was published in 2018 and launched at The Poetry Cafe.

The Ginkgo Prize is a major international award for ecopoetry, funded by the Edward Goldsmith Foundation and organised by the Poetry School. Every year, the competition awards £5,000 in prize money, provides writers’ residencies for the winners, and supports the development of ecopoetry through a programme of free workshops, and a series of incisive essays by leading ecological writers.

Jane’s winning poem, Ming, was selected by Simon Armitage and Jade Cuttle. Simon Armitage said the judges had found it “very touching and very moving”.
