Clevedon Literary Festival has announced the winners of its inaugural 'More Than Words' writing competitions.

Entries for poetry and short stories were in line to win prizes of £100, £75 and £50.

London-based poet Anna Crawford scooped first prize, followed by Bristol's Jill Zhao and Georgina Titmus from Truro in Cornwall.

While a separate award went to Clevedon's own Richard Knott.

Clevedon resident Julie Davies also went on to win the short story contest, with Genevieve Kiero-Watson and Glenda Campbell clinching second and third.

Festival director Isabel White said: "We are delighted with the response and the quality of entries received, and we're already discussing next year's competitions."

Prizes will be presented at the Clevedon Gala on December 6, featuring punk poet T.S. Idiot.
