  1. I really enjoyed writing for this competition and Peter’s wonderful poem ‘Cinders’ is a very worthy winner!! Really look forward to the anthology…thank you! :)

  2. I know Peter, and always felt “Cinders” is one of his best efforts. Congrads to him, and to you for recognizing that. :))

  3. Sincere thanks to you & MR Mathias for running this poetry competition & for selecting my poem ‘Cinders’ as the winner. I am very excited about winning &, also, very humbled that my poem has been chosen. I know a number of people who also entered the competition & they really are incredibly talented poets. Really looking forward to the anthology &, once again, thank you for choosing ‘Cinders’.

  4. Congratulations! Is there a way to see the other submissions as of yet? I know the anthology probably isn’t up yet.

  5. Congratulations to Peter! I’m a little surprised we (Rhiannon and I) placed 3rd! We were writing down to the wire. Thank you so much for the competition. I love having challenges in writing, and this certainly was one! I can’t wait until NEXT time. :)

    • Hi Genora! Thanks for stopping by! :) I’m a little behind with posting this week. Should have the winners’ poems up this weekend :) The anthology will be out in a few months and we will do a post once it is live :) :)

  6. Talk about belated responses, Peter. So immersed in other worldly stuff, this passed me by! Very well done to you, my friend. Always felt that it was a striking poem with such magnificent imagery. You so deserve this accolade.
