Judge's Report - Carrie Etter

Eric Berlin's Weird Sisters, with its fluency and precision, richly visualizes the scene of a poetry reading only to take us to a place of mystery and potential menace.

Ama Bolton's Greyhaar, City of Sea-Mist is reminiscent of Italo Calvino's masterpiece, Invisible Cities, as both illuminate how place can create culture.

Penny Hope's Climbing Girl lyrically, inventively imagines a girl and a bird in an unexpected struggle.

Zoe Siobhan Howarth-Lowe's original prose poem When NASA Finishes Mining borders on speculative fiction, imagining what would become of our world without a moon.

Iris-Anne Lewis's beautifully paced poem, A Hot Summer Day in Cougnac, blurs the line between sight and perception in spiritual experience.

Jill Munro's Ptarmigan imaginatively considers the power of names and naming. Indeed, we 'become' our names.

Kerry Priest's Debussy Writes Images tenderly evokes how musical composition creates another world.

Lesley Saunders' Glass Man powerfully explores what happens when a man seems to become what he feels in the aftermath of war.

Darius Victor Snieckus' Rising richly evokes the extraordinary in the animal life around us.

David Van-Cauter's Leakage, uses four sections to create a compelling montage in which the everyday collides with the threat of illness.

Deceptively brief, Natalie Whittaker's poem, Thoughts Are Origami Birds brings together real and figurative birds in a way that is both intriguing and provocative.
