This is a call by The St James Retirement Hotel for members of our older generation to submit their poetry for our fourth annual competition for the over seventies.

Judged by well-known local author, Finuala Dowling, entries close on 30th October. Winners will be invited to read their poems at a function at The St James, and the winning poem will be published in the False Bay Echo on 21 December.
