1.10.2013 - Second prize in Manchester Cathedral Religious Poetry Competition!

I'm absolutely delighted to have won second prize in the Manchester Cathedral Religious Poetry Competition 2013!

And coming second to such a great poet as Elizabeth Burns (who came first) is a particular honour.

The three prize-wining poems and seven highly-commended poems will be published in the Manchester Cathedral Poetry Competition booklet. To order, please send a cheque or postal order for £4.00 made payable to Manchester Cathedral, to:

The annual prize-giving ceremony, which is part of the Manchester Literature Festival calendar, is to take place in St Ann's Church, on Tuesday 15 October at 2.00 pm. The afternoon will feature readings from the shortlisted poets and the competition judge, Nicola Slee.

This is a free event, but places can be booked via the Manchester Literature Festival website.
