Judge Matt Tierney felt it was tight enough to also give mention to Lesley Strutt’s Elbow Grease as runner up.

The winner was “Winter Music” marked by restraint and tenderness, a tension between inner tranquillity and the outer chaos.

Last year’s competition for a chapbook-sized manuscript was judged by Jason Camlot and won by David Blaikie. This one too will be put out by Tree Press.
