Poetry Competition


Competition theme: ‘Remembrance’

  • First Prize - £250
  • Book tokens and certificates of commendation will be awarded to three runners-up

The competition will be judged by Cumbrian poet, Neil Curry

Neil Curry has published seven collections of poetry, each distinct from its prdecessor. He likes sequences; his second collection is a record of his 500 mile walk along the Santiago Camino before it became a tourist trail. In Some Letters Never Sent he wrote to people, living and dead, who had been important in his life. In his most recent book On Keeping Company with Mrs Woolf he and Virginia visited each other’s time zones and found they had much to talk about.
