An extra big thank you to everyone who entered this year’s competition. 2020 will always be remembered as the year of Covid, and for the first time for a longish while the number of entries fell slightly, reflecting this time of uncertainty. However, nearly 400 entries did make it, and the high standard of those gave the judges the usual hard time in choosing winners. I hope you’ll enjoy reading the winning poems and will keep Grey Hen in mind for next year!
