Launched on World Poetry Day 2020, this Twitter-based competition invited budding writers to express their thoughts about the climate within a 280-character poem. 200+ entries were judged by three esteemed poets: University Chancellor Lemn Sissay, the Centre for New Writing’s Professor of Poetry, John McAuliffe and Ledbury Critic, Maryam Hessavi, who assessed the micropoems based on their deployment of language, form, sound and imagery.
