It’s Wednesday 10th of March! The sun is shining. The birds are singing. And here are the results for last Thursday’s poetry competition!
Last week Penable launched its first Poetry competition and since then has gotten over 30 entries. Thank you to all! We sincerely appreciate the time and effort spent into your poems, it really made it difficult for the judge to decide on a winner!
We asked Ritu Bhathal, the lovely author of the novel, Marriage Unarranged, to choose the topic of our competition and she chose dreams. The participants had to write a poem on either a sweet dream or a nightmare.
Many thanks to the judge, Didi Oviatt, the author of many books including: Search for Maylee, Justice for Belle and Aggravated Momentum. You can find more about her here:
This incredibly kind and AWESOME lady agreed to judge my competition and boy, it was a very hard decision.
” Great poetry here! Every poem written feels like the author has carved a piece of themselves and placed it into delicate words! It was really hard judging, as I love each and every poem! Dreams is a beautiful topic, and I’m thrilled to have been asked to choose my favorites this week!”
She has chosen a person who shone brighter than the others, and I can now (excitedly!) reveal the winner,
