Enter a poetry competition to support an arts organisation
I’ve just heard that the Torriano Poetry Competition is low on entries and that the Torriano Meeting House is in real need of the funds the competition generates. It is a volunteer-run arts and community organisation in North London, best known for its poetry events, but it also runs storytelling and theatrical gatherings and is host to a left wing folk club.
Here are the competition details. You still have time to polish a gem during the Christmas holidays…
