Wow, we’re already into the second week of July. Schools will be breaking up soon! Where’s the first half of the year gone?
If you are aged between 11 and 17 and enjoy writing poetry, now’s your chance to enter the most prestigious poetry writing contest in the UK for youngsters. Entry is free and there’s no limit to the length of your poem, but it must be your own original work. There’s not long till the deadline though, so start writing or redrafting NOW!
“You can enter poems on any theme, and of any length, and in any shape you like. Entry is completely free and you can enter as many poems as you like, however we do advise that you concentrate on drafting and redrafting your poems. Remember, quality is more important than quantity. Poems should be in English.”
