Category What’s on

We are delighted to announce the results of our 10th anniversary competitions for 10 line poems and 10 word short stories.  The judges enjoyed many and varied rich entries; so much so, they extended the numbers of commended poems and stories, and would have liked to include many more.

The winners and highly commended are listed below.  The winning poems will feature in a published Anthology, to be launched at a Poetry, Story and Music Evening on Sunday 11th October.  Places are limited at the event and priority will be given to the prize winners and commended poets.  There will be some tickets available.  For information about the event please click here.

Copies of the anthology will be available to buy – information about this is coming soon. The winning short stories will be published on our website shortly.
