26th September Competition Afternoon

On Saturday 26th September, all the short and long listed poets and their friends have been invited to spend the afternoon in the Elwin Room in the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution in Queen Square, Bath.

Listed poets will read their selected poems and will be offering their books for sale on book tables run by members of the Bath Poetry Cafe.  At the end of the afternoon, the four prizewinners selected by final judge Rachael Boast will receive their prizes and hear Rachael’s reasons for singling out their work.

The Elwin Room will be open from 1.30pm. The readings will start at 2pm and are scheduled to finish at 5pm.  There will be three reading sessions with refreshments available between 3.45pm and 4.15pm.  The alphabetical listings below are also the order in which the poets will read their work.

Note to all readers: You will be introduced by one of the Bath Poetry Cafe judges who will tell the audience what the Cafe panel particularly liked about your piece.  You will then read your poem without any further introduction. Providing you reply by the deadline, your own introductory sentences will be printed on the programme notes.

Stephanie Boxall, Sara Butler, Zanna Beswick, Helen Ashley, Annemarie Cooper, Sara Cheesman, Louise Green, Genista Lewes, Sarah Barr, Anthony Watts
