Freya B. wins poetry competition
Congratulations to Freya B., who won first prize in the Catholic Independent Schools' Conference poetry competition in the Senior category. See her winning poem, 'Excess Ink', below.
The judge commented: "Unlike many others, this short poem jumped right in, with a slightly sinister voice and quirky imagery. There was no superfluous explaining; it dared to throw in one much longer line (which worked because it reflected the length of the process it was describing); and the close, as with many good poems, left the reader with more questions than answers."
