Colette Bryce is an Irish poet who lives in Newcastle upon Tyne. Her latest collection, The Whole & Rain-domed Universe (2014), which draws on her experience of growing up in Derry during the Troubles, received a Ewart-Biggs Award in memory of Seamus Heaney. Selected Poems(2017) won the Pigott Prize for Poetry 2018. A new collection will be published by Picador in 2020.
Colette Bryce said: “I’m delighted to be co-judging the Julia Darling Travel Fellowship in 2019. Julia Darling knew very well how travel can replenish an artist’s image bank, and this prize offers that gift to a writer each year as part of her positive legacy. I look forward very much to reading this year’s proposals.”
