Adam was shortlisted for the prize earlier this month along with fellow Carcanet poets Rebecca Watts (The Met Office Advises Caution) and Alex Wong (Poems Without Irony). Several Deer also received the Shine/Strong Award in March.

Adam receives £5,000 and, as part of the prize, will be invited to read at Glucksman Ireland House at New York University for the annual Tom Quinlan Lecture in Poetry, where he will be provided with travel, accommodation, and an honorarium.

Congratulations Adam!
