A new national poetry competition is being launched in 2018 to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Inspired by the war's famous poets, we are seeking poetry that honours those affected by service and pays tribute to humankind's capacity to cope with adversity. Open to everyone aged 17 and over. The overall winner will receive a £2,000 cash prize, with four runners-up receiving £500. Closing date April 9, 2018. The winning entry will be read out by HRH Duke of Cambridge at a ceremony to mark the gift of the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre to the nation.

On August 18th we remembered the 100th Anniversary of the day Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon first met at Craiglockhart War Hospital for Officers, now part of Edinburgh Napier University.
We heard the war poems they composed there in the summer of 1917, recited by Sam Gray of the Wilfred Owen Association and David Wilson of the Siegfried Sassoon Fellowship, with extracts from their letters and diaries, read by Yvonne Morris.
For further details and for related events, please see the Napier University Website
