Our very own Poet in Residence shortlisted for major award

On the occasion of World Poetry Day (March 21) we are delighted to share some fantastic news with you.

Words the Turtle Taught Me, the latest book by World Animal Day’s very own Poet in Residence, Susan Richardson, has been shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry.

Susan says: I've been dazed and disbelieving ever since hearing the news and am just so thrilled that work that aims to defend and celebrate endangered animals has been recognised!

The winner will be announced on 27 March 2019. Good Luck Susan!
