Ian McMillan & Eloise Unerman, 16

A huge congratulations to 16 year old Eloise Unerman from Goldthorpe who attends Hive’s Rotherham Young Writers, winner of 1st place in the Hear My Voice Poetry Competition on the theme of home judged by poet, Ian McMillian. And to Ellie Kilkenny, also 16, from Barnsley Young Writers who was commended. Nice work, great poems!

Eloise bagged herself a rather lovely Kindle and Ian fed back saying her poem was full of strong imagery and that he could see the burnt toast in the first line!

Congratulations also to everyone else who won or was commended in the various age categories – If you entered and didn’t win, don’t shy away from trying again with future competitions. South Yorkshire clearly has talent!

Hear My Voice is a 3 year project for the people of Barnsley to express themselves through poetry, the written and spoken word.
