My congratulations to Tim Cranmore (image above), the new Worcestershire Poet Laureate for 2013-14. His was a powerful performance, with a brilliant narrative in verse (particularly for his memorable poem on the theme of 13, about the number 13 dish in a Chinese restaurant) and deservedly won. I am particularly impressed by his oratory skills, and recall fondly a reading of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" he gave at 42 Worcester, some months back.
I would have hated to have been a judge because the competition was so strong!
Here's a photo (below) of me too on the day performing.
