Thank For your Feedback



In the 2015 academic year, we invited secondary schools across the UK to enter their students into our Poetopia competition, which was inspired by popular dystopian fiction. We received in excess of 16,500 entries from over 600 schools nationwide! A huge thank you to all the schools, teachers and pupils who took part, we hope you all enjoyed being a part of Poetopia!

Poetopia really inspired students and we had an abundance of fantastic, original poetry.
