It was indeed a dark and stormy night in January when the most dedicated of English-language poets met in Tel Aviv to celebrate the winning poems from the Voices Israel 26th annual Reuben Rose competition.

It was perhaps a tribute to English poetry in Israel that although the competition is international and poems were submitted from all over the world, the three principal prizewinners were veteran Voices poets who have lived in Israel most of their adult lives.
