LIVERPOOL YOUNG POETS COMPETITION 2008

On 29th March 2008 we held a celebration for the prize-winners in our inaugural young poets competition. The judge was the late Liverpool-Irish poet Michael Murphy who took great care to read every poem submitted from young people from all areas of Merseyside.  

An anthology of winning poems - The Secret Lives of Horses -  is available.
