Eyewear Poet Barbara Marsh wins 2015 Troubadour Poetry Prize

Eyewear poet Barbara Marsh has won the 2015 Troubadour Poetry Prize.

Her poem about memory, ‘The Farthest Way East’, set on the US-Canada border, with its references to the “the white backdrop eclipsing the land / five months of the year,” was said by judge Jean Sprackland to reveal a little more of its meaning “each time you read it”.
Barbara Marsh was presented with her prize by Richard Douglas Pennant of Cegin Productions, which sponsors the competition. Organiser Anne-Marie Fyfe said that the Troubadour competition helped keep Coffee-House Poetry running all year round, in the absence of any public funding.
