I won the first stage of a BBC competition and I was one of 15 in the North East to be able to go to two workshops and then do a performance with Malika Booker.
I won 1st prize in the Wharfedale Festival poetry Competition.
I have have been published twice. First in a book of poems about the Moor in connection with the Stanza Stones Project with Simon Armitage. Secondly in a book about the Bronte Family for the Bronte Parsonage Museum.
I also won a competition to be published in a book about the NHS and I was also published in a book called the Nigt School Poets after I had been on a night school poetry course with Maria Stephenson.
