Victor Lown (22nd April 1920 - 12th January 2012)
Sadly on 12th January 2012 one of our regular and favourite poets Victor Lown from Leicestershire passed away. Victor wrote many poems and entered them into our competitions over the years. Recently he had entered our Royal Invitation competition where he was chosen as the winner out of a huge number of poets! As his prize Victor had the great opportunity for his poem 'To Love Is' to be framed and sent to HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton to mark their wedding on the 28th April 2011.
Victor was well known to everyone here at Forward Poetry and had a great talent for writing poetry, he will be sadly missed by all. Below we have listed a few of Victor's poems for you all to enjoy:To Love IsTime Marches OnA Love That’s Forever Near
Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
