Are you a budding poet? Would you like to enter a competition which could lead to your poem being published, as well as the opportunity to go on a free, week-long writers’ retreat where you will learn from award-winning writers and poets?
The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2018 is now open for entries!
This year you can write on ANY theme, in any style and of any length.
All you would need to do is to email me with your name, age and poem and we can submit your entries online.
If you are under 13 you would need your parents to write a note giving permission to enter the competition.
The Poetry Society needs to receive entries by the end of July so you would need to email me with your poems by the end of June, so that I have time to send them all off!
If you’ve got any questions then email/see me or your own English teacher.
Good luck and get writing!
