The following competitions are for 5-18 year-olds, unless otherwise stated.
Easter is one of the most egg-citing times of the year! The weather is getting warmer, the school holidays are here and of course, we get to feast on chocolate! What are your favourite things about Easter? Do you give up anything for Lent? Do you enjoy a good Easter egg hunt? Perhaps you go to church with your family or love seeing lambs being born? However you celebrate Easter, we’d love to hear about it. Our favourite poems will be published in a special anthology.
Ghost Stories - we've all heard them and we've all been scared by them at one time or another. They can be terribly scary or simply funny, but either way they have been an attention-grabbing form of storytelling for centuries and leave people wondering whether what they've heard is fact or fiction!
Who do you idolise? Is it your mum or dad? Your best friend? Your brother or sister? Perhaps there is a famous person, from a sports or film star to an author or musician that you admire and aspire to be like. Why are they your favourite person and why do they inspire you?
Write about your pet, your favourite animal or create a creature! Perhaps you'd like to write from an animal's point of view or about conservation? We can't wait to read your animal-inspired poems! Open to young writers aged 4-18 years old.
