Given Words, which is an annual National Poetry Day competition in which poets are given several words to make a poem, has now put up this years selection, including winning poems by Lily Holloway and Thalia Peterson.
This is one of two fun given words events I took part in this year! My poem, ‘After the flight’, is included in the selection, which you can read here: Given Words, 2019. There are some really cool poems here, all containing the same 5 words (be sure to check out the under 16s section). The poems were judged by Charles Olsen, Mikaela Nyman, and Clare Arnot, and the competition was supported by The Landing Press.
