Congratulations to the winning poet

As part of What a Tool Shire of Mundaring and KSP Writers Centre collaborated to present a poetry competition with the theme "The tool/s one cannot live without".

The winner was announced as by Scott-Patrick Mitchell for their poem tools to fill an empty room.

Also commended was The Other Big Bang Theory by Lawrence Smith, Miscarried by Rose van Son and Freedom by Catharine Szathmary.

The competition was judged by London based poet Cath Drake who said “Mundaring's rich creativity, craft and sense of community came to the fore. Many touching poems linked the theme of tools to inheritance, gifts, offerings and learnings, underling what's important in life”
