For the monumental Poetry Competition in Six Hundred Rounds (Roppyakuban uta’awase), twelve poets each provided one hundred waka poems, fifty on seasonal topics and fifty on love, which were matched, critiqued by the participants and judged by Fujiwara no Shunzei, the premiere poet of his age. Its critical importance is heightened by the addition of a lengthy Appeal (chinjō) against Shunzei’s judgements by the conservative poet and monk, Kenshō. It is one of the key texts for understanding poetic and critical practice in late twelfth century Japan, and of the conflict between conservative and innovative poets. The Competition and Appeal are presented here for the first time in complete English translation with accompanying commentary and explanatory notes by Thomas McAuley.

Dear Friends, Just one year has passed since the start of the WeArtFriends project but so many things have happened. Since November 2017 WeArtFriends has released 4 issues of the "Doorway to Art" online magazine.We worked with, became friends with and featured 27 poets, writers and visual artists in the magazine. Thanks to our wonderful friend Eden Sleepwalker, we have launched a book cover design service https: //we-art-friends.com/book-cover-wizard/ In February 2018 our first poetry competition was announced - we called it the Poetry Tournament as we believe that poets (as well as all other creative people) compete as noble knights and support each other. With this Anthology of Winning Poems e are happy to announce the results from our first Poetry Tournament. The winners are: Kelsi Rose - First Prize with the poem "Sunday Sacrament"Eleanor Snare - Second Prize with the poem "This Word Is not the Right Word"Tamara Miles - Third Prize with the poem "How to Stop Your Dog from Howling" The jury had a lot of discussions before selecting the second and third prize winners in the competition and the poems that did not get a prize are our six runners-up. They are not ranked according to score and all are equally highly valued as all of them were among the short-listed poems. Congrats to: Adam Inglis - poem "I Was a Man on Fire"Christine Owens - poem "For a Cantankerous Old Spider"Duisenali Alimakhin - poem "I Call the Mornings"Leila Tualla - poem "Indifference"Nick Olah - poem "Last Best Chance"Soulla Christodoulou - poem "Forever Is Too Far"Stay inspired and keep transforming your dreams into art!

This anthology contains the winning entries of the Malaysian Migrant Poetry Competition 2015 and 2016 as well as all the finalists. It contains poetry of migrant workers and refugees from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Myanmar, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Syria in 10 languages, including Bengali, Tagalog and Hakha Chin, with accompanying English translations. The Migrant and Refugee Poetry Competition demonstrates the real need for voices from the fringes of Malaysian society, reflective in the work of these migrant poets who portray the influence of the mighty literary traditions from their countries of origin. —Bernice Chauly, Author of Once We Were There, Onkalo and Growing up with Ghosts These are poems not about migrants and refugees but by migrants and refugees. They remind us that poetry cannot be thought of as an elite activity, and that people of all backgrounds – national, cultural, ethnic, class, gender, and generation – have come naturally to poetry in times of crisis, struggle, and confusion. —Sharmani Patricia Gabriel, Professor of English, Universiti Malaya
