Poetry contest winners announced!

National poetry month

The winning poems in Poetry London's 7th Annual Poetry Contest are on display at London Public Library as part of National Poetry Month celebrations.  The winners were announced last Wednesday at Landon Branch Library at the Poetry London Reading, a series of monthly poetry readings that has been a regular program at Landon since 2004.

This year's contest was judged by Canadian poet Gregory Betts. Congratulations to all of the winners!
