The winner was George Wielgus (left) :
... an outrageously gripping and and entertaining performer ...(who is coming this month to Readings@Seksan!) and the first runner-up was Reza Rosli
... who played the sincere, oh-so-shy underdog ...which makes me happy no end because I know this guy can really write and am thrilled that he conquered his fears enough to perform.
Well done to the organisers, Chris Mooney-Singh and Daphne Lee, and all the other poets who took part. It seems that a high standard has been ensured already.
