Single Girl Lies Hidden (Poetry) by Natalie Moores

6.50

Winner of the Overton Poetry Prize 2018.

Judge Carol Rowntree-Jones said of Nat’s debut poetry pamphlet:

‘A coherent and accessible sequence.  The poetry comes from a very personal place, but it is well-controlled and shaped into something linguistically and imagistically interesting. There’s a story throughout the whole sequence, from the great opening line to the image ‘sprawling through the dirt’ at the end.’

Dr Kerry Featherstone, judge and Lecture in Creative Writing at Loughborough University said: 

‘The irony of the title is of course that this sequence is the work of a poet who is refusing to hide.  Moores uses her singular skill with language and poetic structure to deal with a subject that is painful.  Reading 'the tears, the wrath and the aftermath' is also painful at times, but it should be.  The sequence is a brilliant response to personal experience: sadly, it is also poetry that speaks to a shared experience.’
