Congratulations to member, Karen MacFarlane, who has been placed 3rd in the Scottish Mountain Poetry competition for her poem Ardmair Bay Dawn. Karen is a relatively new member who says, “It was very much the friendly feedback from OUPs (OU Poets) in the workshop magazine that encouraged me to submit to a competition.”
