Many congratulations to the winner of this year's poetry competition:
Joan McNerney (USA) for her poem Lost landscape. The judge's notes commended the poem's strong central metaphor, command of form and material both lyrically and in a manner reminiscent of Robert Frost "satisfyingly enigmatic".
The runners-ups are as follows:
Rafael Ayala Paez/Roger Hickin translation (Venezuela/New Zealand) - Impressions
Sheree Mack (UK) - Leaving home
The competition was judged by Scottish poet Andrew McCallum.
