The following competitions are for 5-18 year-olds, unless otherwise stated.
What does summer mean to you? Share with us what you love or loathe about this time of year, or even a favourite summer memory! From BBQs, holidays and ice creams, to wasps, rain and hay fever, there’s plenty to inspire your poem!
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.
