And the Worcestershire Poet Laureate finalists are…

After wading through a pool of impressive applicants, our WPL Competition judges have made their decisions regarding this year’s final three.

Remember, the Worcestershire Poet Laureate for the coming year will be announced at our festival launch, which is taking place at Worcester Racecourse on June 9th (doors open at 6:30pm for a 7:30pm start). During this event the judges and the audience members will hear performances from all three finalists ahead of a final decision being made.

And, at long last, your three finalists for this year are, in alphabetical order…

Nina Lewis

Damon Lord

Louise Reeder

Our sincere congratulations to all three poets for making it this far in the process. We wish them all the very best of luck in the next stages of the competition, and we hope that as many as of you as possible will join us next Friday to see the lucky winner crowned as Laureate for the year!
