Poetry with Brian Whittingham

The winners in Brian Whittingham’s Poetry Competition on 4th November were 1st Lucy (‘Mystical Circles’); 2nd Cara (‘Circles’); 3rd equal Alison (‘ Life In The Round’) and Bill Douglas (‘Guia’); with three Commendeds, Jack (‘Full Circle’), Alasdair  (‘Ride To Live’) and Tony (‘The Ring’).  A very successful morning with Brian who made the group think in an unblinkered way about poetry – its structure, and the importance of line-endings, whether with noun or active-verb; and also the importance of rhythm.  He emphasised that poetry will impact differently on readers, sometimes on the same readers at a different time,  but should always affect emotions.
