One of our January trio of readers and a previous winner of our open competition

Jemma Borg – one of our January trio of readers and a previous winner of our Open Competition

2014 got off to a splendid start with a trio of poets reading at the Camden Centre, giving us a very varied menu of poetry.  Jemma was the winner of our 2012 Open Competition, and is working on her first collection.  Garry Ely has been a member for a long time, even though he now lives in Oxford,  and members will have read many of his poems in our folios, in which he appears regularly.  His moving collection “Angel Visits” has been published by Pindrop Press.  Margaret Beston has developed a thriving poetry community in Tonbridge, and her collection “Long Reach River” is produced by Indigo Dreams.  Lots of striking images impressed in these readings – the beautiful pathetic fallacy of snow “suffocating the windows”, the “knuckles of flint” and a river “churning stars in its belly” …

Will you be this year’s competition winner?  Entries must be received by Jan 31st., so you will need to be sending them off very soon.  Good luck.
