‘Selected or Neglected’ Book Collection Competition – RESULTS

I’m really pleased to say that after a great deal of (enjoyable) reading, I’m pleased to be able to announce both the winner and shortlisted poets for our second annual ‘Selected or Neglected’ Book Collection Competition.

The Shortlisted Poets, are:

  1. Alison Lock
  2. Anna Nolan
  3. Christopher L Perry
  4. Ellie Rees
  5. Gavin Bourke
  6. Margaret Royall
  7. Patricia M. Osborne
  8. Peter Pegnall
  9. Roger Elkin
  10. Tina Cryer

This was a horrendously hard decision that has taken me far longer than intended, but I am really pleased to say that Ellie Rees was the overall winner and will be invited to have her collection published in beautiful book form during 2021..

This is much deserved, but I should also say that both Peter Pegnall and Alison Lock are to be regarded as ‘Highly Commended.’

Thank you again to everybody that took the time to collate their work and submit it for this.
