Poetry Competition Winners 2021

October 1st, 2021

First, thanks to Anne for last week’s contribution. I couldn’t introduce her properly in my previous post as she is the winner of our 2021 Poetry Competition and the results hadn’t been officially announced. So congratulations to her for her poem Sunstruck. It’s a wonderful, sophisticated evocation of sunflowers in art. Second place went to Alan Coombe for Out of Season and A Spoonful of Syrup took third place for Tracy Davidson. Do go and read them as they are all worthy winners. And don’t forget, our Flash Fiction Competition is now open for entries until 30th November. Read the rest of this entry »

Poetry Competition Winners Announced!

September 18th, 2020

First, thanks to Sharon for last week’s post. It’s reassuring to realise that there are still slots out there for shorter pieces. You’re never going to be able to give up the day job writing for this market, but it can provide a lucrative side-line. And if you find yourself stalled – for whatever reason – on a longer piece, you can always turn to letters or a quick filler and hope your block will have cleared by the time you get back to it.

Now…quick drumroll… here are the winners of our 2020 Poetry Competition. In first place we have Alison Reed with Tango For Two; in second place Judith T Drazin with Tea, Toast and Temperance and in third place Roger Elkin with You Bring Me Bouches-du-Rhone. I’m not going to go into detail here as I’ve given my general views on this year’s entries in a previous post. But I can assure you that the three winners are brilliant – please go and read them on our Competitions Page. Keep checking there too because our latest Flash Fiction Competition will soon be open for entries. Read the rest of this entry »
