Annette Cameron Encouragement Award for unpublished W.A. Poet

I won! It was very exciting to win first place for this award for my poem, ‘Impossible Jeans’. Many thanks to Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers’ Centre and the judge Caitlin Maling. Here is what Caitlin had to say about my poem:

‘First Place went to “Impossible Jeans” by Lisa Collyer, WA. There’s a contained fury
in this poem, established through the very careful and precise deployment of diction
and lineation. It allows Collyer to shift between architectural scene, historic moment
and the all too fragile human body.’
