Adjudicator: Wendy Klein
Winner of many prizes, including the Cinnamon Press Single Poem Competition (2014), Wendy Klein is the author of 4 collections: Cuba in the Blood (2009), and Anything in Turquoise (2013) from Cinnamon Press; Mood Indigo (2016) from Oversteps Books, and a ‘Selected’, Out of the Blue (2019), from The High Window Press. Her pamphlet Let Battle Commence (2020), Dempsey & Windle publishing, based on her great grandfather’s letters when he served as a Confederate soldier in the US Civil War has been described as ‘honest, brutal even, but always laced with an understanding of the frailty of mankind when in combat.’ (Jonathan Davidson)
