John Nicholson, Saltaire poetNow in its fifth year, our Prize, named after the most famous local exponent of the art, continues to encourage the reading and writing of poetry. Entries are accepted throughout the year. Poems may be of any length but must be written by a Saltaire Sentinel reader and have Saltaire and/or Airedale as a theme.
The prize itself is publication in our September issue (which now involves appearance on the worldwide web). The closing date for entries for this year’s prize is AUGUST 20th.

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.
