Jonathan Edwards, 2014 Ledbury Poetry Competition winner for ‘Servant Minding a Seat for his Master Before a Performance of The Rivals,
Covent Garden Theatre, 1775’. Judged by Ian McMillan.

Excited to hear that Jonathan’s book My Family and Other Super Heroes is also a 2014 Costa Poetry Award Winner. We are all rooting for him to go on and win the overall Costa Book of Year. The poems are funny and vivid and moving.

The judges comment says it perfectly,  “We haven’t had as much fun reading a poetry collection in ages. Joyous, brilliant and moving – this is a poet to celebrate.”
