Beating off stiff competition from a very strong shortlist Rosie Garland won the Angels & Devils poetry competition with My Favourite Uncle.
We give our special congratulations to Rosie, but also to the authors of all the wonderful shortlisted poems.
Those who were there on the night were in the fortunate position to hear all the shortlisted poems and we are delighted to publish the winning poem and the joint runners-up in our magazine.
We would like to share a few pictures from the event:

We also heard some interesting comments on the selection process from our members of the jury, Arnold Jansen op de Haar and chair Donald Gardner.
