Mark's written a special poem just for Young Writers!

National Poetry Day is one of our favourite days of the year here at Young Writers!

We'll spend the day reading The Poetry Bus, This Is Me and Empowered entries that we have received so far, we'll talk about poets and poems, and enjoy seeing all the fun you're having on social media.

The amazing poet Mark Grist, who is also our independent judge popped in today with a brand-new poem he has just written "What Is Special?" for National Poetry Day 2021. Mark has filmed the poem today at Young Writers HQ, just for you...

Tomorrow, we will be running a very special giveaway on our social media... you could win a National Book Token and a SIGNED copy of Mark's "What Is Special?" poem, so come and join in the conversation and celebrate all things poetry with us.

Have a fantastic National Poetry Day!
