Winner of poetry competition marking 70 years of the NHS – Michelle Diaz

Congratulations to the winners of this competition to mark the 70th anniversary of the introduction of the National Health Service. Particular congratulations to Michelle Diaz who won first prize with her poem My Life Reduced to a Window. The competition was judged by none other than Wendy Cope and Lachlan Mackinnon. Poems will feature on the Christabel Hopesmith website and in a memorial book of poetry on the theme of the ‘human condition’.

We can’t wait to publish Michelle’s pamphlet The Dancing Boy next year!
