The Bread and Roses Songwriting and Spoken Word Award, run by Culture Matters in partnership with the Communication Workers Union, is now closed for entries.
Thanks to everyone who sent in entries, we have received a lot of good submissions. We'll work out a way to publish as many as possible online, and announce the winners as soon as possible..
We will also be shortly announcing details of the second Bread and Roses Poetry Award, run by Culture Matters in partnership with Unite.
Watch this space, as they say.....
