Poetry Results + Short and Long Lists

We are pleased to announce the winners plus short and long lists for the 2017 Fish Poetry Contest, and would like to congratulate the poets for being selected from a pool of 1,305. 

Ten Winning Poems (chosen by Jo Shapcott) to be published in 2017 Fish Anthology

Short List

Long List


 

Judge Jo Shapcott has chosen the following ten poems for inclusion in the Fish Anthology, which will be launched at the West Cork Literary Festival on Monday 17th July. Our thanks to Jo Shapcott for taking on the task, and for the comments on the winning poems. And congratulations to the ten poets who have been selected.

There were 1,305 entries to the contest.

We apologise for the delay in announcing these results. 

Unusually, two of the winning poets each have two poems in the final ten. Róisín Kelly is the overall winner with Paris, 13 November 2015, and Tuam received an Honorary Mention but has been withdrawn du to publication elsewhere. Vincent Roderic poems Yesterday Clouds and Throw Me Down The Key came 2nd and 3rd respectively. We have decided to include two further poets in the Anthology so as to publish ten poets rather than eight. The two poets, are Harriet David and Catherine Ormell (listed below).

 

Róisín Kelly

First:
Paris, 13 November 2015 by Róisín Kelly (Ireland)
Love and violence collide in this poem.  The way the writer interleaves terror and passion makes for a remarkable, tender and terrifying work.

Second:
Yesterday Clouds by Roderic Vincent (UK)Vincent Roderic
This exploration of the ‘secret blather’ of lovers delves into language, memory and loss so powerfully that the poem became, ironically, one I couldn’t forget.

Third:
Throw Me Down The Key by Roderic Vincent (UK)
A poised and beautifully observed elegiac poem, which hinges on the central image of the familiar apartment window key drop, allowing gravity to resonate and tremble in the reader’s ear and eye.

 

Honorary Mentions: (in no particular order)

Peter SirrAdd to Dictionary by Peter Sirr (Ireland)
The poem asks for no less than a new language, a new dictionary for the shattered and broken world which has been delivered by humanity to humanity. 

A Short Exposure by Anthony Lawrence (Australia)
Anthony LawrenceA powerful sense of time and place imbue gives elegiac and cinematic force to the poem, so that central character becomes known and unforgettable.

Forty Winters by Harry Bauld
A beautifully turned sonnet which delivers a vision of ageing which is both poignant and good-humoured.  Its taut, sinewy language and syntax work with the form to give the poem a natural and uniquely self-elegiac air.

Heron by Judith Taylor
The heron is so beautifully observed and described here, that in our flawed human way we want to reach into the poem and touch it while responding, at the same time, to the poem’s suggestive reflection on the particular indifference and power of the natural world.

Preface to an Autoimmune Response by Aídah Gil (USA)Aídah Gil
A poem of the body and in the body which delivers a convincing and, at times, frightening vision of internal and external physical worlds colliding.

Tuam by Róisín Kelly
Close, accurate and steady observation give this poem’s historical and political context even more impact; and the movement between Cambodia and Ireland adds to its power.
NOTE: This poem has been withdrawn due to publication elsewhere and Jo Shapcott’s 11th choice The Station Fire by Harriet David (UK) replaces it. 

Truthfully by Suzanne Cleary (USA) Suzanne Cleary
Long, vivid lines and sentences unfurl into the past with the poem finding a route via a resonant object (a dress) into a remembered vital moment where, as the poet says, desire and fear of truth reside.  Past and present are beautifully interwoven and this resonant material is well handled in the poem.

Sunrise Sunset by Tina Pisco

Sunrise Sunset

€12  (incl. p&p)   Sunrise Sunset by Tina Pisco Surreal, sad, zany, funny, Tina Pisco’s stories are drawn from gritty experience as much as the swirling clouds of the imagination.  An astute, empathetic, sometimes savage observer, she brings her characters to life. They dance themselves onto the pages, and waltz around your mind long after […]

Fish Anthology 2015

Fish Anthology 2015

How do we transform personal experience of pain into literature? How do we create and then chisel away at those images of others, of loss, of suffering, of unspeakable helplessness so that they become works of art that aim for a shared humanity? The pieces selected here seem to prompt all these questions and the best of them offer some great answers.
– Carmen Bugan.

Fish Anthology 2014

Fish Anthology 2014

What a high standard all round – of craft, imagination and originality: and what a wide range of feeling and vision.
Ruth Padel

I was struck by how funny many of the stories are, several of them joyously so – they are madcap and eccentric and great fun. Others – despite restrained and elegant prose – managed to be devastating. All of them are the work of writers with talent.
Claire Kilroy

anthology-2011

Fish Anthology 2011

Reading the one page stories I was a little dazzled, and disappointed that I couldn’t give the prize to everybody. It’s such a tight format, every word must count, every punctuation mark. ‘The Long Wet Grass’ is a masterly bit of story telling … I still can’t get it out of my mind.
– Chris Stewart

Fish Anthology 2010

The perfectly achieved story transcends the limitations of space with profundity and insight. What I look for in fiction, of whatever length, is authenticity and intensity of feeling. I demand to be moved, to be transported, to be introduced into other lives. The stories I have selected for this anthology have managed this. – Ronan Bennett, Short Story Judge.

The Woman Who Swallowed the Book of Kells – Collection of Short Stories by Ian Wild

Ian Wild’s stories mix Monty Python with Hammer Horror, and the Beatles with Shakespeare, but his anarchic style and sense of humour remain very much his own in this collection of tall tales from another planet. Where else would you find vengeful organs, the inside story of Eleanor Rigby, mobile moustaches, and Vikings looting a Cork City branch of Abracababra?
