Johnson’s Willow: Poetry Competition Results

The Johnson Society’s competition to find the best new poem about Johnson’s Willow closed on 15 August, having attracted 25 entries. The overall standard was high, which made the judging process challenging, but the judging panel finally awarded the three prizes as follows:

First prize – Sarah Dale;
Second prize – Catherine Clarke;
Third prize – Isobel Grundy.

Sarah’s poem will be read out at the planting of the Fifth Johnson’s Willow in November, and will subsequently be published on this website and in the Johnson Society’s Transactions for 2021.

Our congratulations to Sarah and the other prizewinners, and our thanks to all who took part in the competition.
