Let's celebrate...

This year Young Writers celebrates turning 30!

We're inviting young writers aged 4-18 years to join in The Big Poetry Party this summer...

Poems can be inspired by any theme and written in any style!

Ideas to write about...
- Celebrate your favourite person, place or thing
- Your best day ever
- Something that makes you happy
- Your hopes & dreams for the future
- The seasons
- Nature and animals
- A birthday-themed alphabet poem

The Big Poetry Party is an excuse to celebrate - we'd love for you to be involved, and join us in this incredible Young Writers milestone!
