We are delighted to announce that Tessa Foley has won the Live Canon 2013 International Poetry Competition, with Doreen Hinchliffe winning the Borough Prize. The winners were announced by Head Judge Glyn Maxwell at an event at Greenwich Theatre. The prize anthology, featuring the 21 shortlisted poems is on sale from our online shop, or from Amazon.
Live Canon's album of Christmas poems is on sale again from our shop, or Amazon. It makes a great Christmas present (or just a present to self) and all proceeds go to our work with young people. Our children's poetry CD also makes a great stocking filler.
We are delighted to announce a Burns Night show in collaboration with Oxford Playhouse, all details here.
Thanks to all of those who came to the first previews of Live Canon's collaboration with Glyn Maxwell: Sweet Ways the World Ends. There'll be more dates announced for January soon. Join our mailing list to the first to know...
