Tree Poets : Shade of Fire Competition – Results

I’m really pleased to finally be able to announce the winners of our ‘Tree Poets’ competition, that aimed to find three poets to share a pamphlet for us to publish this year.

In many ways, I hate to admit that the competition didn’t go well, but despite the Post Office losing the entries and everything else, we got there in the end and I am more than happy to say that we decided to publish two such collections, such was the quality of the entries.

So the winners are, in no apparent order:

1. Jane Lovell
2. Frank McHugh
3. Jane Burn
4. Kate Garrett
5, Elizabeth Gibson, and
6. Kay Channon

Their work will be published, split across two pamphlets:

a. Tree Poets : Shades of Fire, and
b. Tree Poets : Flames of Ice

I hope you will join me in congratulating all of the winners.

Additionally, given that we were both delayed and had a change of judge due to this, I will be writing to everybody who entered the competition and inviting them to enter any other Hedgehog Press competition that they wish with our compliments.  

All the best
