Winning poems in the Roland Leach poetry prize – on display at the Nedlands Library.

This afternoon we stopped in at the Nedlands Library to check out the winning poems from the 2012 Roland Leach Poetry Prize. (You can find the display in the Children’s Library section.)

Congratulations to Celine Ng—the 9-year-old poet who won the overall prize, as well as the Year 3, 4 & 5 category. Way to go!

(If that’s inspired you to get writing, you can check out a list of kids’ writing comps here on the blog.)
