Competition Winners 2017
The H03 competition was extremely high quality and the choices were agonized over and finally decided by overall continuity of the poetry and what we perceive as fitting for Ho3. Originally we had planned to create one book but as the poets were so good we decided to do two books plus a competition anthology (details at a later date)These then are the winners .
Book 1 Fiona Ritchie Walker, Lynn Davidson and Jane Yolen
Book 2 Jonathan Bay, Morgan Downie and Iain G. Matheson
Congratulations! and thank you to all entrants for their wonderful poetry.
