Childhood Competition - And The Winner Is...


Thanks to everyone who took part by submitting a poem or voting for their favourite(s). Seems like a great many people had trouble choosing just one. It's been really interesting to see how everyone has approached the subject of Childhood - I wasn't sure how well it would go down as a topic.

Anyway, here are the results:




The winner:

Anna Percy – Childhood Recollection:

Second place:

Kath Hewitt – My Childhood Rainbow:

Joint third place:

Chris Co – Where Did They Go:


Rachel Bond - Thoughts From Childhood:



Anna, if you email me an address I'll post you out the £10 Waterstones voucher this weekend.

Thanks again, have a great weekend everyone.

Congratulations, Anna. Your poem is absolutely worthy of first choice among the WOL readers. Everyone sent in high calibre work, and I greatly enjoyed reading variations on this past theme also.
