What does short listing mean?
Every regional organiser has read everything, and chosen a long list that they would have performed at their site, if there were enough time.
Sadly that isn’t going to be possible, we’d need twice as long, so they will be picking their final performance list (where they haven’t already) based on timing and not having poems that are too similar in tone; there were quite a few thematic things going on, particularly with birds.

We are aiming to announce the final line up on 1st December.
