Great news for Aniqah Choudhri; Aniqah’s poem The Unloving Ground has won the €6,000 Moth Poetry Prize, one of the world’s richest prizes for an unpublished poem.
The prize was judged by acclaimed poet, Warsan Shire, who described Aniqah’s The Unloving Ground as “a lush, gorgeous poem – one that indulges all of the senses, a heartbreaking poem, an unrequited love poem, a poem for a home that does not want you”.
The current issue of The Moth, featuring Aniqah’s winning poem plus the three other shortlisted poems, is available from themothmagazine.com.
Huge congratulations to Aniqah. It’s great to see her writing finding more success and we hope this brings her many more readers.
Aniqah Choudhri’s story, Chicken Heart, was shortlisted for the 2018 Bristol Short Story Prize and is available in our Volume 11 anthology, published by Tangent Books.
