Results Culpepper Remedy Booklet Competition 2019

Selecting two winners from the shortlist turned out to be far more difficult than we thought. The overall quality of those selected for the shortlist meant that we could have had another 15 winners. But there could only be two and finally I am pleased to announce that the winners are;

 

Winner is

Undercurrent by Simon Jacks

(the second winner has been withdrawn by the entrant and it was necessary to select a relacement)

Low Season by M G Khan

 

Both of these collections displayed an authenticity and clarity which made many of the poems stand out. The voices are clear and unequivocal. The winning collections will be published by us in the summer of 2020.
