Five Years of Winners Hosted by our Young Poet in Residence, Dom Hale
The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award is the key award for young poets aged 11-17. Over 7,000 poets submitted to the 2013 competition, from a total of 75 countries worldwide, drawing entries from Belgium to Barbados and Vietnam to Venezuela. With such fierce global competition, to be selected by the judges is an extremely impressive achievement, and for many poets is a career-defining moment.
This reading brings together winners from the last five years of the award – Phoebe Power, Hattie Grunewald, Philip Coales, Phoebe Walker and Ledbury’s own Young Poet in Residence, Dom Hale – to perform their latest work.
