We had such a wonderful time at the launch of issue 19 of The Bangor Literary Journal where the winners of the 10th Annual Bangor Poetry Competition were announced. Stephen Smythe travelled from Manchester to read for us and be presented with his FORTY Words certificate; John Rubery displayed his artwork and sketched during the event; Inge Persyn provided us with beautiful music. All round it was a memorable event.
And so, we are delighted to be able to announce the winner and placed poets in this year’s Bangor Poetry Competition.
