The winners of the Oxford’s Twin Cities Poetry Competition have been announced!
Organized by Oxford City Council and Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre, and in association with the Oxford Poetry Library and Les Midis de la Poésie, the competition was open to anyone who lives in Oxfordshire or in one of Oxford's twin cities. There were three age categories: 11 years old and under; 12-16 year olds; and over 16 years. The theme for the competition was ‘Oxford’s twin cities’. We would like to thank you everyone who entered - the judges were delighted to read so many fascinating poems about the topic.
Very many congratulations to all our winners and runners-up! You can also find a shortlist of poets below.
Join us online on Tuesday 27 June to celebrate the poems from the winners and runners-up and to hear from the judges. The event takes place from 5.30-6.30pm UK time via Zoom and you can register for free.
