Former homelessness worker Ian Duhig's seventh collection of poetry The Blind Roadmaker is a PBS Spring Recommendation and shortlisted for the 2016 Forward and Roehampton Poetry Prizes. Duhig is a joint winner of a Shirley Jackson Award for short stories, a winner of the Forward Best Poem Prize, the National Poetry Competition twice and has three times been shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize. He is currently working on a project involving refugees suffering from PTSD and their therapists.
'The Blind Road-Maker is a generous, smart and big-hearted book of poems, from a writer who truly values the whole of life as it is variously lived.' Ben Wilkinson, The Guardian
