‘Time to Talk’: Mental Wellbeing Competition

Congratulations to the winner of our 'Time to Talk' competition, Jennifer Waring! 

Jennifer's poem, 'Therapy', cleverly explores the topic of mental health through the extended metaphor of the humble onion. She plays with sound elegantly, deploying internal and imperfect rhymes throughout, and the extensive vocabulary and scientific language used throughout this piece is impressive.

We look forward to sharing your writing with our Wordsmith viewers later this week and to offering you your FREE two hours of mentoring in due course.
