It's results day

For the second year, the entrants to the Charm Poetry Competition have helped proved our contention that poetry can be warm, whimsical, witty, and word-playful. 

We would like to congratulate the six poets placed in the highly commended category, as well as the three prize-winners - Vijaya Venkatesan for ‘Boustrophedon (or, how not to write a Terza rima)’,  Siobhán Flynn for ‘Tall Old Ladies’, and Kelly Davis for 'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day'. 

Finally, we would like to thank our judge, Polly Walshe, who was a delight to work with.

You can find out more about the prize-winning poets, and the three prize-winning poems here, and Polly's competition report here

We will be back - in the meantime, keep writing!
