With a heavy heart, I am announcing the retirement of the Soul-making Keats Literary Competition. I. too, will be retiring and gearing up for the next chapter of my life where I can devote more creative energy to my own writing and to my family.
As Founder and Director, I‘ve worked with many outstanding movers and shakers, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have spent the last thirty years learning from amazing judges, sponsors, and entrants who trusted us with their creative efforts; and from a wide range of supporters, both those who have passed through and those who’ve stayed for the long haul.
I want every single one of you to know that the quality, effort, and soul you put into participating with grace and gusto cannot be replaced. I wish all of you farewell and Godspeed, and hope that you will continue to impact society with your great enthusiasm.
Your legacy lives on!
Founder and Director
