    Last year Surrey Libraries in partnership with Hurtwood Press and The Bluehouse Festival ran a poetry and landscape photography competition called 'Word in Focus'.

    The best entries have been included in an high quality, showcase, book of poetry and landscape photography featuring Surrey.

    The book will be undertaking a tour of all of our main town libraries.
