“Reading the entries to this competition was a delight. Family love covered grandparents, new parents and wider family. There was thought, imagination and feeling – love – in every poem. Sometimes I was close to crying, other times I could feel myself smiling.”
Poetry judge Sarah James
“...[the authors’] tales are as varied and textured as our individual parenting journeys naturally are.”
