(Georgina pictured at Poets Corner @ Pages Cafe on Saturday 17th may 2008.)

Our own Georgina M Bailey, a Perth poet who first read her winning poem at Poets Corner ~ was awarded 1st Prize in the inaugural Judith Wright Poetry Prize for 2008 with "Chronology".

Georgina shared her good news with us last Saturday during Poets Corner @ Pages Cafe.  I was asked to read it for her because she wasn't feeling well enough to do it herself. 

To read the winning poem, please go to this page:  http://www.overlandexpress.org/pp-bailey.html

To learn who else was placed, go to this page; http://www.overlandexpress.org/poetry_prize.html

Julie Chevalier was awarded3rd prize ~ Frances participated with Julie in workshops tutored by Ron Pretty through  Poetry Australia during 2005.

A poem by Ann Morgan another Perth writer, was commended.

Congratulations to all and thank you again Georgina ~ please, get well soon.  As you can see by the links, the winning poem appears in the latest edition of "Overland" magazine.
