We were delighted to reinstate our Barn Owl Trust Poetry Competition after a two year absence. This year, due to the gap created by the pandemic, we asked the Editor of Dartmoor Magazine, Sue Viccars, to judge the competition. She was delighted to be our Judge and spent many happy hours reading fifty five poems out loud until she decided on the winners.

The theme of this year’s competition was ‘Inspirational Nature’ and our poets came up with some great entries. The standard of the poems submitted was, as in previous years, remarkable and it was a hard task, according to Sue, to select the overall winner, runners up and those who were highly commended.

As we have done before, we have put the winning and commended poems and a selection of the other entries into our Wildlife Words Anthology – Volume 7. We do hope you will buy a copy and enjoy the inspirational verses that we’ve been privileged to read.
