Liverpool's Most Romantic Poet 2010

Dead Good Poets Society organised a poetry slam to find Liverpool's Most Romantic Poet.

On Wednesday 17th February, in the 3rd Room of the Everyman Bistro, sixteen poets performed poems on love, romance, lust, passion in front of a capacity crowd.

It was a fierce battle. The poets flirted, sweet-talked and wooed the audience in order to earn their votes. Poems such as Sex For the Over Sixties, A Passion For Celebrity Chefs, and Boyfriends to Avoid were met with laughter and applause.

The audience scored poets on performance, poetic content and romantic appearance. Jacqui Dunne (pictured) was the clear winner with a humorous poem based on 27 years of marriage. She won a cash prize and the coveted "Most Romantic Poet" sash.

In 2nd place, Wirral poet Clare Kirwan, and in 3rd place, Pat Fearon.
