A big thank you to all the schools and pupils who participated. The Editorial team has enjoyed reading every single poem as well as the difficult task of selecting the winners. The fantastic poetry series has become part of the National Archives at the British Library, London and will be kept forever, showing a snapshot of what inspires today’s young adults. Each participating school received a complimentary copy of the edition their pupils feature in, so don’t forget to check out your school’s library to see if a Young Writers book is on the shelves!
