And the winners are...

We’re delighted to announce the winners and highly commended poems for the inaugural Charm Poetry Competition.

The first prize of £100 was awarded to Andrew Wilson for  ‘Once upon a Llama’, with second prize of £50 going to Victoria Sherratt for ‘Sound Supermarket’, and the third prize of £25 to John Ling for his poem ‘Anti-viral’.

In addition, six poems were highly commended.

You can find out more about the prize-winning poets, and the three prize-winning poems here.

We would like to thank all the poets who entered. You have helped to prove our claim that poetry can be warm, whimsical, witty, and word-playful. You can read the competition report here.

The Charm Poetry Competition will be back in the autumn. In the meantime, keep writing!
