I'm delighted to have been asked to judge entries for a children's poetry competition, launched by Sussex Cancer Fund. Budding poets aged between 6 and 16, from across the region, sent inspiring submissions. The winners are now published in an anthology. Proceeds from the sale will help the charity. A big well done to all those who entered!
