Glen Wilson wins the Artemesia Arts poetry competition 2024

Irish poet and Seamus Heaney prize laureate, Glen Wilson, has scooped the winning place in this year’s contest with his poem, Setting Bones. A beautifully evocative imagining of soldiers healing after war injuries, the poem is premised on the invention of plaster casts for broken limbs by two sculptors, Anne Acheson and Elinor Halle, whilst treating wounded soldiers in the First World War.

Our congratulations to Glen and warmest thanks to all who entered this year. Without you there would be no prize. See our Poetry Competition page for details of all winners.
