Update – Poetry Competition 2016

three takahePoetry Competition Update

Our Judge, Mr Peter Bland, has emerged from the mountain of words that three hundred and thirty seven poems create. He was delighted by the opportunity that ‘as a whole renewed his belief in the diversity of possibilities that poetry offer, and reminds him how poetry expresses the nature of things, it doesn’t explain them.’ ( A sneaky wee teaser from his report.)

And, yes, results are in.

We are in the process of contacting the four prize getters. In the meantime all the poems are with Joanna (our poetry editor). She is reading her way through the poems and selecting possibles for publication. (That’s two bites of the apple and just another example of how fab our competitions are!)

If you do not hear from us by 1 December you can safely send your work elsewhere. I urge you to do this. Remember art is subjective.

While I have your attention:

Please heed the call to keep a bo-peep on the blog.

Over the next week or so I will be revealing an exciting new competition.  Yes, another innovation from your forward thinking and dedicated Board.Straw effect takahe

It is something meaty to get your teeth into as your end of year worries are blowin’ in the wind. Till then, enjoy the long weekend.
