The ever popular annual poetry competition always produces a fascinating poetic mix of styles and forms. Doggerel and limericks sit side by side with haiku and sonnets.
The theme this year was ‘Postcards’ and all the competition entries were read at this meeting.
We had two judges this year, author Malcolm Welshman and artist / illustrator Lyn Milner, who talked about some of the entries that ‘caught their eye’.
First Prize – Annie Fisher for a trio of excellent poems – Multiple-Choice holiday postcard, Postcard from a long ago island and Slug on a postcard.
Second Prize – Gaie Vickers for The Postcard
Third Prize – Jane Williams for Postcard
