And our judge is...

Updated: Mar 20

The incredible FIONA BENSON!

Here's some more about Fiona:

Fiona Benson’s pamphlet was ‘Faber New Poets 1’ and her debut Bright Travellers received the Seamus Heaney Prize and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. Her second collection, Vertigo & Ghost won the Roehampton Poetry Prize and the Forward Poetry Prize. She lives in Devon with her husband and their two daughters.

Yes, our judge is a FORWARD PRIZE WINNER!

And speaking of prizes, here's what you could win if you enter our lovely competition! Our winner will get their hands on £200, and second and third place will receive £100 and £50 respectively. We also have our very special Dragonfly Prize for Potential, where Fiona will recognise outstanding effort and promise in a fourth young writer, and said young writer will bag £25 worth of book vouchers.

The competition will open on Monday 16th November 2020 (that's this coming Monday) and close on Monday 1st February 2021. We are so excited to start this journey, and of course, to welcome all your amazing entries. Information on rules and how to enter will be shared over the weekend, so please do keep an eye on this blog - and of course, all links will be posted on our social media pages.

Take care, me lovers, and stay well!
