Reward for girl poet

A GIRL from Benson is set to have two of her poems published in an anthology.

Caitlin Hamilton, 12, of Heron Road, impressed the judges of the Power of Poetry competition run by the Young Writers Association.

Her poems Horror and Not The Wind will be included in the anthology together with poems by other winners from around the country. The book will be sent to all the school libraries in the UK and the National Library.

Caitlin, a pupil at Icknield Community College in Watlington, said: “I can’t believe I’m going to be a published writer.

“I love creative writing and my English teachers have always encouraged me to take part in competitions.”
