Mark Pajak was the 2019 mentee for the Peggy Poole Award, a mentorship scheme for poets based in the North West of England, in memory of the poet and broadcaster Peggy Poole. Mark Pajak’s mentor was Michael Symmons Roberts.
Mark’s poem, ‘Dismantling the largest oil tanker in the world’, was part of a series of ten commissions by The Poetry Society asking past National Poetry Competition winners to respond to both the most and least commonly used words across the prize’s 40 year history of winners.
