National Poetry Day Comp - 'Stars'

The 'Stars' competition has just featured in the Guernsey Press with the winners announced on Saturday and the full poems printed together with interviews with the poets. So while I get this article scanned up to include on the blog, below you'll find almost all of the shortlisted poems from the competition - I think that there should be at least 20 of the leading lights printed here... scattered among them of course are the winners themselves, including:

1st place: Emily McLaughlin - 'The Yellow Star'
2nd place: Jamie Hardie - 'Stars'
3rd place: Fraser Le Tissier - 'The Superficial Star Follower'
Commended: Helena Murphy - 'Come Crash And Burn With Me'
Commended: Jack Colley - 'Nightfall'
Commended: Meredith-Ann Jee - 'Stars'

Enjoy the stargazing for now...
