Fourteen of the successful poems in the Bath Poetry Cafe Short Poem Competition are now featured on this blog. I hope everyone who entered our competition will find it interesting to read some of the pieces the Cafe Judges selected to forward to RACHAEL BOAST, our final judge. Under the Competition Critiques and Competition Poems headings on the home page, drop down menus will take you to poems by HELEN ASHLEY, AMA BOLTON, GRAHAM BURCHELL, SARA CHEESMAN, ANNEMARIE COOPER, MARTYN CRUCEFIX, CLAIRE DYER, ANNIE FISHER, NIKKI KENNA, CAROLYN KING, WENDY KLEIN, JOHN RICHARDSON, JONATHAN STEFFEN and ROBIN THOMAS. You can also reach the individual poems by following the links in their critiques.
Many of the poems appearing on the blog will be read by their authors at the final prizewinning event in Bath on Saturday 26th September 2015. All competitors and friends are warmly invited to attend. ( Tickets on the door £5.)
If any of the featured poets would like to mail me a thumbnail portrait and/or a link to their website, I will do my technological utmost to incorporate those into my critiques.
Please notice that it is possible to make comments on the blog if you want to say something in response to your poem’s critique.
Thank you all very much for allowing me to feature your poems on this blog.
