More shortlisted Oxfam Poets

Here are some of the other poets shortlisted for the Oxfam poetry in 2004 by Oxfam poet in residence Todd Swift. They didn't tell me and I just only found out when ego-surfing so maybe other shortlisted poets will spot their own names the same way.

You can download the pamphlet Poems for a Better Future here. All sales went to the Oxfam Sudan Crisis relief fund.

The winners were Isobel Dixon, Roisin Tierney and Katy Evans-Bush.

Honorable Mentions:
Robert Davidson,
Jen Hadfield,
Pam Moolman (is this the lady who married Joe Strummer?),
Emma Phillips,
Maureen Weldon.

Other shortlisted poets:
