‘Handwrite Me a Poem About…Your Best Friend’ – RESULTS

I’m really pleased to say that our ‘Your Best Friend’ competition was well supported and that I have had a fine few weeks reading through the poems.

As ever, the standard was high and the interpretation of the theme eclectic, which is just how I like it, and so choosing a shortlist and eventual overall winner quite the challenge. But there always has to be one and so I am pleased to announce that the 20 Shortlisted Poets who will see their poem appear in a Hedgehog Press Anthology later this year, are:

1. Anna Teresa Slater

2. Anne Dunford

3. Belinda Johnston

4. Colin Glover

5. Dani Gatti

6. Douglas Cousins

7. Georgina Titmus

8. Hayley Pearce

9. Kathryn Slattery

10. Margaret Royall

11. Laura Eyres

12. Mick Yates

13. Peter Iveson

14. Phil Santus

15. Raine Geoghegan

16. Steven Jackson

17. Tammy Swift-Adams

18. Val Ormrod

19. Vicky Allen

20. Vusi Sibanda

As for the overall winner, I am really chuffed to say that it is

Anne Dunford, for her poem ‘If I Were A Cat…’

Anne will receive her prize of £100 and will see her poem printed on one of our lovely Artcards.

Many thanks to everybody that took the time to enter, it is very much appreciated.
