Words & Music Open Poetry Performance Competition 2011

Yesterday evening, the poetry crowd at Sammy Dow's, Nithsdale Road, celebrated the umpteenth "Words & Music" Open Poetry Performance Competition. Poets had two minutes to perform one poem. The judges were Carl MacDougall and Marc Sherland.

This year saw the inauguration of the Hugh Healy Trophy, in honour of the event's co-founder (with Pamela Duncan). In these photographs, the trophy somewhat catches the light of the flash!

I was delighted to be a runner-up this year, having last done so in 2007. Congratulations to fellow runner-up Catherine Walker and winner Katherine Beaumont, as well as to all the other contestants.
