Adjudication from Peter Thabit Jones
There were some excellent submissions for the 2018 competition. I was really impressed by the variety of poetic voices, subjects, and forms. It was not easy coming to a decision, though I knew I was looking for work that was original, fresh, with something that held my attention for the span of its unfolding, and with something that would call me back again and again. I eventually arrived at three poets whose poems kept calling me back again and again: Paul Steffan Jones, Whyt Pugh, and Sally Spedding.
The winner of the 2018 competition is Whyt Pugh.
