Well, what a busy day, but I am pleased to be able to announce the Three winners of our White Label – Trois First Collection Competition, that will see Hedgehog publish three pamphlets during 2020.
I know every-judge-ever says the same thing, and it isn’t always true, I’m sure, but this proved to be the most difficult choice I’ve had to make to date as there was a stunning selection of diverse poetry styles and subjects which is just how I like it.
In the end each of the three poets I’ve chosen brought something a little different that I couldn’t ignore and I guess that is what it is all about.
Saying that, there are a few others that came close that I may well be speaking to regardless of the competition.
But enough blather, and I’m proud to announce our winners as:
- Brendon Booth-Jones – Vertigo to Go
- Damien B. Donnelly – In the Garden of the Many Meadows of my Mind
- Lucy Crispin – shades of blue
Congratulations to the winners and as ever, many thank to everybody that took part in the competition.
