‘Heroine Eyes – Celebrating Poetry By Women’ – RESULTS

One of the things I really wanted us to do at Hedgehog this year, is to highlight some of the brilliant Women poets that perhaps haven’t received history’s recognition.

Our Heroine Eyes competition asked contemporary poets to celebrate a female poet and I have to say that some of the results were astonishingly good.

One poet stood out with her nod toward Edith Nesbit, and I am pleased to say that Marjorie Smith was ultimately selected as our overall winner.

As for the shortlisted poets, each of these will be invited to have their work included in our ‘Heroine Eyes’ anthology later this year.

The full shortlist, is:

  1. Marjorie Smith
  2. Alexander J Gifford
  3. Andrea Reisenauer
  4. Andrew Stickland
  5. Bethany Stuart
  6. Ceinwen E. Cariad Haydon
  7. Caroline Wheeler
  8. Desmond Childs
  9. Fiona Hallett
  10. Genya Johnson
  11. Hazel Hutchinson
  12. Isabella Bornholt
  13. Kathryn Timmons
  14. Renée Sigel
  15. Maryam Hessavi
  16. Mick Yates
  17. Phil Santus
  18. Sarah Wimbush

As ever, many thanks to everybody who took part in the competition, it is always a total joy to read your work.
