2012 Michael Marks Award :  Dream Endings (Rack Press) wins the Michael Marks Pamphlet Award 2012! 

Chair of Judges Alan Jenkins said: Roisin Tierney's subjects may be the dark ones of human vulnerability and anguish, but the poems in  this wonderfully cohesive and well-organized sequence rest on solid and graceful foundations of precision, musicality and wit. A remarkable solo debut from this already much-noticed poet.
