    1. I’m in the fine city of Exeter on an exquisite early Summer day after a highly successful concert with LiTTLe MACHiNe, then I read this news about the Chapbook competition. Many thanks for helping the week begin on a high and congratulations to the winners and others commended too.

    2. Thank you so much to the blue nib and to judge poet Kevin Higgins and congratulations to all winners and honourable mentions.
