Greta Stoddart: On Silence, Self-Knowledge &
Judging the National Poetry Competition
Greetings from The Poetry Society
With the deadline of the 31st of October a little over a month away we caught up with Greta Stoddart, National Poetry Competition judge for 2022, about her writing, reading and current ontological entanglements
We take what we know for granted. But we don’t always realise there’s a context for – or around – what we know… And sometimes we come to know that we don’t know very much at all.
– Greta Stoddart
Greta is one of the three judges for this years competition along with Jason Allen-Paisant, Associate Professor of Aesthetic Theory and Decolonial Thought at the University of Leeds, and Michael Symmons Roberts, winner of the Whitbread Prize for poetry
Best of luck in the National Poetry Competition! We look forward to receiving your poems.
Michael Symmons Roberts
