We congratulate Janet Murray, former Chair of SVAG and ongoing member, who has won the prestigious Fish Publishing Prize for Poetry with her poem 'Vernacular Green' (in memory of Howard Hodgkin 1932-2017). Her poem was published in July 2018 in the Fish Anthology at the West Cork Literary Festival.
Janet grew up in Lancashire and has spent a large part of her life in Sheffield. Her preoccupation is visual art, which is underscored by an interest in people―their dilemmas and how they appear. She has worked as a Senior Manager in public service and completed a Writing MA at Sheffield Hallam University in 2016 (with Merit). Her father was an inventor. She has a partner and two daughters.
