Poetry Prizes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

At The Assembly House, on 16th April, Norwich Writers’ Circle held it’s Open Poetry Competition Prize-Giving Evening.

This year’s competition, which had over 400 entries, was adjudicated by George Szirties. In a warm, witty and welcoming introduction, the adjudicator commented on the variety and quality of poems entered.

After the competition prize-winners were announced, a selection of poems from the Anthology were read aloud by the poets and NWC members to a packed, and very appreciative, Pierce Room.
