Not long now until summer and the next issue of takahē, which will be out in time for Christmas and will include the results of our Monica Taylor poetry competition. But the long list is already published. You can access it here.
Congratulations to all those listed. Thanks, too, to those of you who entered and to our lovely judge, Cilla McQueen.
At last, the final results are out. Go to our Competitions page to see who won, who came second and who was highly commended. Congratulation to all of you. It has been a hugely successful enterprise with many, many entrants. And our wonderful judge, Nod Ghosh, was impressed by the standard of these, so well done and thank you to everyone who entered.
We will be running another short story competition in due course, but there’s no need to wait for that, our poetry competition is still open and we look forward to an avalanche of entries as the deadline (31 August 2019) approaches. What better to do in these cold winter days but to pen a poem? So get writing and let us have the fruits of your labours.
