This year’s recipient of the Ted Slade Award is Johnathon Clifford. Jim Bennett of Poetry Kit said "For many years Johnathon has been at the forefront of exposing publishers who have been trying to scam poets. Over years there have been publishers who have tried to get money from poets to see their work published by giving them unrealistic expectations as to the worth of their poetry or its possible market potential. Johnathon has exposed many of the bad practrices that were prevalent and offered advice and help to many poets over a long period of time. We are pleased that he is now a recipient of the Ted Slade Award as Ted was always keen to highlight bad publishing practices and Poetry Kit still carries advice from Johnathon intended for poets seeking publication."
Johnathon said; “Whatever do I say? Only that I am delighted and honoured to say 'Yes' to having my work over the years recognised by such a prestigious award.” Johnathon Clifford
