Poetry Competition 2022
Update - The deadline for submissions is now past and judging has now taken place - thank you to everyone who entered!
This year, we asked for poems on the theme of ‘new’. Poems must be no longer than 16 lines, plus the title, and all are required to have a rhyming component.
Entries have been assessed by group judges who have selected the top 10 entries. An overall panel of judges has selected the top three, which will feature in Third Age Matters.
The top 10 poems have been chosen and 7 of those are below in no particular order. Winners 1-3 will appear in Third Age Matters magazine and on the website here, after publication.
