She was presented with her award at an event last week, after each shortlisted poet read a piece of their work. 

Lauren receives £1,000 and the opportunity to develop her creative practice with the University of Leeds Poetry Centre. The four runners-up each receive £200. Work by the shortlisted poets will be published as an anthology by Carcanet Press.
