We are sorry to have to announce that owing to unforeseen personal circumstances, Kei Miller has had to withdraw from the Competition Event on 18 May. As previously advised the judging process was successfully completed and we would like to thank Kei for selecting the wonderful winning poems.
In view of the short notice we have decided, with great regret, that we have little alternative but to cancel the event. We sincerely apologise for any disappointment this will cause, to both our audience and the competition winners. We will announce details of the winning poets and poems as promised by 18 May.
Our next scheduled event is 21 September and the line-up will include the first prize winner (full line-up will be revealed nearer the time). We look forward to seeing our regular supporters as well as new friends at this event.
Finally, we would like to thank all those who entered the competition and everyone who kindly shared our posts and helped publicise it. As a voluntary organisation we are continually reminded of the importance of the support from the community of poets in Manchester and beyond.
With warm wishes,
The Poets & Players team
