The Rev Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924) was a popular novelist, a collector of folk songs and fairy tales, and an amateur archaeologist - as well as the father of fifteen children and writer of some well-known hymns. This competition - part of the programme of events marking the centenary of his death - is divided into two categories: poems based on any aspect of his life and writing, and poems that allude to any of his Cornish or Devon-based novels.
First (in each category): £50
