Derry poet Jenni Doherty has won the inaugural Noelle Vial Tyrone Guthrie Centre Poetry Bursary Award for 2013.

Owner of Little Acorn Books at Bedlam, Jenni’s debut ‘Rain Spill’ was published by Guildhall Press last year and she hosted Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy’s visit this weekend past. Jenni now intends to use the bursary to work on her second collection.
