On the way ... a poetry competition run by Write Out Loud on the theme of milestones
Write Out Loud has been chosen by the Milestone Society to run the society’s national poetry competition in 2017, which is being backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Milestone Society, established in 2001, has gathered records of over 20,000 milestones, guide posts and tollhouses still existing in the UK in a mission to tell the world about what these represent, the history of our highways and the people who travelled along them. The competition, on the theme of milestones, physical or metaphorical, will have adult and under 16 categories. Watch out for more details to be announced here in the new year.
