Swanwick Poetry winner

Swanwick WINNERS

Jonathan Telfer highlights the winning entries from our annual Swanwick Writers’ Summer School competitions

The theme for this year’s competition was ‘playing safe’, but when it came to judging the entries, we happily discovered that the WM writers had done anything but in their writing. Instead, they sent in such a vivid, inventive selection of work that it made picking the winners a difficult, but most enjoyable task.

The winning entries – a witty, thoughtful poem about three very different options facing an unfaithful husband; an entirely convincing first-person narrative about the unlikely benefits of risky behaviour, and a moving triumph-of-the-underdog story – fully deserved their prize of a week at Swanwick. Congratulations to their writers, and all the runners-up!
