Reading at the Keep, Guilford, UK, 5 March 2018.

I was the judge for the 2013 Bailieborough Poetry Competition. The reading of the shortlisted poems and the prize giving was held during the festival and here, in three parts, is the video of my talk at that event.

The following poets were shortlisted: Annette Skade, Lindsay Stronge, Maurice Devitt, Dermot Maguire, Karen O’Connor, Breda Wall-Ryan, Gabriel Griffin and Heidi Chiang. The winner was Annette Skade for her poem "Wedding Quilt". The poems can be read here.
