Pandemic Poetry - Futures Of Hope

All Ages

Pandemic Poetry - Futures Of Hope Video

It's time to look to the future...

We’re inviting young writers across the UK to use poetry to look to the future and explore their vision and hopes.

The pandemic has and is affecting all of us on a daily basis especially children and young adults. Poetry is a great way to explore and process emotions as well as making us look to our future from a brighter perspective.

Pandemic Poetry – Futures of Hope gives young writers a platform and purpose to look forward in a positive way.

Will they write about their dreams or their hopes, their worries or concerns, or a message to help their peers?

Writers can create poems in any style they would like and there is no line limit, this is about the writing process and expressing themselves.

We feel extremely passionate about this project and we’d love to hear how your young writer gets on with this exercise. You can share everything with us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
