2011 Lumen/Camden Poetry Competition
Judged by the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy
Carol Ann Duffy picked this poem as the winner from more than 1,000 poems entered. Over £2,000 was raised for the homeless in two North London Cold Weather Shelters and this competition will run again next year.
Caroline is now working with Ward Wood towards completing her 20 page chapbook which will be launched in early autumn. There will be a prizewinner’s reading from the pamphlet at the Camden and Lumen venues (watch our events page for details when they are announced later this year). Proceeds from sales of the pamphlet also go to support the Cold Weather Shelters, and you can pre-order from the Ward Wood Web site or from the regular Camden and Lumen open mics.
An article about Caroline, her work and the competition can be read on the Open University website.

but nothing since. No step ladders, no children with carrier
sapling left to establish in a meadow, surviving drainage
