JOHN NICHOLSON POETRY PRIZE

To encourage the reading and, more specifically, writing of  poetry locally. ALL Sentinel readers are eligible to participate, the only stipulation being the theme of  Saltaire and/or Airedale.
John Nicholson (1790-1843) , “The Airedale Poet”, died  tragically on the bank of the river, close to what is now Victoria Road.
The Sentinel picture of John Nicholson is an electronic adaptation of the engraving by W.O.Geller.

The closing date for entries to be considered for this year’s prize is August 20th
This announcement will be familiar to regular readers, as the Poetry Prize is now in its fifth year. Another competition, launched at the same time (September 2003), it was felt better not to repeat:
