    Just wondering why you don’t state who the judge/s are for the Waterford Poetry Prize. You must be the only comp on this Island who doesn’t. It’s important for an entrant to know as they may have entered the poem in anther comp to the same judge and also they can ‘pitch’ it to the stated judge. etc
