Thank you for alerting me to the wonderful Scottish Poetry website! The posters are stunning and intend to use them in teaching.


It's an excellent site, isn't it? I'm glad you like the posters.


Aw, thank you Karen! It has been a great experience doing the judging and I really hope more bloggers are invited to be involved in processes like this in the future. I loved the great big boxes of books arriving and then the sorting and sifting and reading. The discussions were fascinating and far-reaching, not good enough to say 'I really liked this book...' Or ' I didn't like this one' and coming up with reasoned arguments about why was essential.
I learned too how to do it and stay sane too so would allocate specific weeks to judging reading only and then have a break, so not as daunting as I had imagined either.
Hoping everyone enjoys the books as much as we did!


I should think breaks and breathers are really necessary!
Well done, Lynne, and here's to great success for your chosen books.
