An evening to celebrate the 902 poems entered into the record breaking Angels & Devils Poetry Competition organised by Holland Park Press. The winning poem will be announced and the winner and runners-up will read their poems.
The judges Arnold Jansen op de Haar (author of the poetry collection Yugoslav Requiem and novels King of Tuzla & Angel) and Donald Gardner (author of poetry collections Get the Most out of your Jet Lag & The Glittering Sea and translator of, among other poets, Remco Campert: I Dreamed in the Cities at Night) will give valuable insights on the judging process and read from their own work.
This will be followed by a reception, an excellent opportunity to enjoy a drink and mingle with the judges, fellow contestants and the publisher. A lovely treat for poetry lovers and it’s free.
