This Page was created during the Covid lockdown when performing was not allowed in person to a live audience. It was crowd-funded and consisted of video clips sent by poets and writers from the region. Their works were voted on and the most popular three received a cash prize. These were Arun Kapoor (3rd), Dale Parnell (2nd), and the Gerald Kells (1st). The first half of the resulting video comprised of readings from his novel, Bella by RM Francis, a lockdown poem by Al, and a well-made video from the Staffordshire Poet Laureate of the time, Mel Wardle-Woodend.
