Poem commended in YorkMix Poems for Children Competition

Huge congratulations to the winners of the first YorkMix Poems for Children Competition, judged by Carole Bromley!

Laura Mucha scooped the first prize with her poem, Rapunzel, a witty retelling of a classic fairytale.

Second prize was awarded to Richard Carpenter, for A Diplodocus Thumbs A Lift After Being Retired From The Natural History Museum, while equal third prizes went to: Geraldine Durrant for A Change Is As Good As A Rest; Matt Goodfellow for A Special Badger; and Sarah Ziman for Packed Lunch.

I’m thrilled that my poem Centuries of Questionable Kings was among those commended.
