AWAKENING
Poems

By Laura Solomon

 

“ONE OF THE PURPOSES OF POETRY is to make inner thought visible; the things which were previously invisible (or unknown) that can only be revealed through poetic speculation. Laura Solomon’s work makes no claim that poetry is “truth”, while yet accessing its potential to grasp the slippery nature of reality.” - Andrew S. Guthrie, author of the poetry collection, Alphabet (Proverse 2015), Proverse Prize finalist, 2013.

“LAURA SOLOMON'S POETRY holds a fascinating sharp edge, and much wry humour, quite a few surprises. The famous, infamous, and notorious feature here, at times they're chatty, or offering insights we'd never know quite this way otherwise, then they're tender or mysterious too. Free verse with a revealing aspect. Language adeptly chosen, original, simple, occasionally about some messy events but written clean like a new, sharp knife.” - Raewyn Alexander, Prize-winner Miles Hughes Achievement Award 2014 – for Innovation, Perseverance, and Effective Involvement in Independent Publishing

Laura Solomon has a 2.1 in English Literature (Victoria University, 1997) and a Masters degree in Computer Science (University of London, 2003).

She has won prizes in Bridport, Edwin Morgan, Ware Poets, Willesden Herald, Mere Literary Festival, and Essex Poetry Festival competitions.

She was short-listed for the 2009 Virginia Prize and the 2014 International Rubery Award and won the 2009 Proverse Prize. She has had work accepted in the Edinburgh Review and Wasafiri (UK), Takahe and Landfall (NZ). She has judged the Sentinel Quarterly Short Story Competition.
