Frosted Fire Firsts winners are announced

The winning pamphlets in our 2020 competition, which will be published later this year, are:
First: One Brief Wave by David Lukens
Second: And Drought Will Follow by Lee Potts

Our apologies for the delay in announcing results. The Covid-19 pandemic caused postponement of our annual festival, and the virus also infected two of the festival team. Both are near full recovery.  19 May

The winning and shortlisted poets are all invited to read — along with the three  judges — in a special online event on Saturday 30 May. Audience tickets will be offered exclusively to poets who entered the competition.  Details will go to each poet by email.
