THE AUTUMN VOICES OVER 70 POETRY COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED

Rather appropriately for an over 70 competition, there were over 70 entries – 76 to be exact. 37 came from Scotland, 33 from England, 1 from Wales, 1 from Northern Ireland and 4 from the USA. 13 of the entries were submitted by people over 80, including one person who was 90 years old. Our experienced, award-winning adjudicator, the poet A.C.Clarke, is now reading the poems. The winners will be informed on 30th September 2018 and the results posted on this blog, shortly after, including the short list and the long list. Soon after this the winning poems will be posted, along with a brief interview with the winner and the adjudicator’s report. Thanks to all those who took part in the competition.
