Read Judi’s poem A different kind of urban commissioned by the Open University Choir as part of the celebrations for ‘MK @ 50’ on the ‘Poems From OU Poets’ page. The poem formed the lyrics for a twenty minute choral piece, with brass ensemble and percussion, which was premiered in November 2017. It was the final flourish of the ‘MK @ 50’ celebrations.
Wonderful news from OU Poet Judi Moore, she has won the Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Award from ‘Words for the Wounded’ with her novella, ‘Little Mouse’. Congratulations, Judi.
