‘A sonnet – hurrah! I would have liked there to be more good poems in traditional forms’ Wendy Cope (judge of Mslexia Women’s Poetry Competition 2014)
‘I like to see that a poet has engaged with form, and bothered to think about whether the poem should be divided into stanzas’ Kathleen Jamie (judge of Mslexia Women’s Poetry Competition 2013)
