A Poet Laureate for Stoke on Trent

Some of you will be aware that I pushed for the implementation of a Poet Laureate position for Stoke on Trent. I met with the Lord Mayor, the City of Culture bid team and my local councillor. The application period was announced last autumn, and I am happy to confirm that there were 16 entrants. 

16 residents want to represent the city's poets. 

16 residents wrote new material so that they could apply. 

I see that as a success.
