Fantastic Feasts Poetry by Young Writers

In 2018 the Teece ran a poetry competition in tandem with the ‘Fantastic Feasts’ exhibition. The judges were very impressed with the high standard and range of poems received for the competition, which made the task of assessing the works extremely challenging. The place winners were:

Senior Category (15-18 years)

Junior Category (11-14 years)

Guest judges for 2019 were poet Dr Lynley Edmeades, University of Otago Department of English, Professor Paul Millar, University of Canterbury Department of English, and Dr Patrick O’Sullivan, University of Canterbury Department of Classics.

Many thanks to all the poets who took the time to share their work with us.
