The Swale Life International Poetry Competition series are organised to encourage creative output and excellence whilst raising funds to help our charity work at Diversity House and keep Swale Life magazine in publication and free to read. These competitions are administered on our behalf by Excel for Charity – a service operated by Eastern Light EPM International that raises money for charities through writing competitions.
Results of the Swale Life Poetry Competition (April 2011) judged by Claire Askew are now out as follows:
1st Prize: “Blue-shirted” by Roanne O’Neil
2nd Prize: “Triangulation” by Frances Donovan
3rd Prize: “Rough Guide to the Lake District” by Christian Ward
“Eating Mackerel” by Wendy Pratt
“Garden of Remembrance” by Abegail Morley
The winning and Highly Commended Poems will be published in Issue #6 of Swale Life magazine on Saturday 28th of May.
Judge Claire Askew gives some very fair and frank advice and feedback in her judge’s report.
