Huge congratulations to all who entered this year's Dr Paul Hullah Poetry Prize, sponsored by an Old Riponian now a poetry professor in Japan. He thoroughly enjoyed the shortlist as selected by RGS English teachers, and has announced the winners this year, describing it as 'balletic' and 'melodic'.
