National Poetry Competition

Post by Joao » Sun Apr 07, 2019 11:22 pm

Not sure how much of an achievement this is, but got this one (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=23255&p=195314&hil ... ck#p195314) longlisted here (https://poetrysociety.org.uk/competitio ... mpetition/). Thanks to those who helped with comments.

Congratulations João,

would you consider posting the long-list version
in Finishing Touch? It would be good to see how
it turned out.

Regards, Not.

Very good, Joao. (I see that's exactly what I said at the time.)

Well done!

Thanks, all! Not, how do I move the post to Finishing Touch? I've never done it before. Do I need to ask one of the moderators?

Joao,

I’m not a great fan of poetry comps, but many congrats anyway. It’s quite an achievement, and the poem is clearly
a very good one.

Cheers,

Tristan

Thanks, all. Hi Not, I've put the final version up now. No radical changes: mostly incorporating your very helpful suggestions at the time.
