We are thrilled to report that we have received hundreds of entries for the competition and we are fully aware that many people are waiting anxiously for the announcement of the finalists. Unfortunately we have been forced into delaying this announcement due to circumstances beyond our control. At this stage, we are unable to confirm the announcement date but we can assure you this is receiving urgent attention.  We don’t want to rush the process and wish to ensure that every poem gets due consideration from the full judging panel. Please keep your eye on our website and Facebook page for updates and information. Once again, we apologise for the delay.
