Friends of Woodthorpe Grange Park 2018
CALLING ALL BUDDING WRITERS AND POETS
Autumn, a season of mists and mellow fruitfulness
Calling all Sherwood and Mapperley’s budding poets: For those of you who read the bi-monthly editions of the Woodthorpe Gazette, the newsletter for the Friends of Woodthorpe Grange Park, which is published on the Friends of Woodthorpe Grange’s website. You will also notice, for those who read it I end each edition with a poem that best describes the season we are in. Therefore, thinking ahead to future editions of the Woodthorpe Gazette, and also of Woodthorpe Grange Park’s centenary in three years’ time, what I am calling for is for those who like writing poetry to write a poem (no matter how big all small) that best describes Woodthorpe Grange Park. To give you an idea of what I am looking for is poetry that best describes the four seasons on Woodthorpe Park. Also, apart from the four seasons, you can write about what best describes your own experiences of Woodthorpe Park.
There is no limit to how many poems you submit. If you wish to submit a poem please place your name at the bottom of the poem and email it to my email address, which you will find on the Contacts and Additional Information page on the Friends of Woodthorpe Grange Park website.
Please note all writing will be subject to editorial approval. However all poems published in the Woodthorpe Gazette will be fully acknowledged. Finally it is hoped that every poem submitted will be published as part of a centenary publication in 2022.
