Under 16s poetry competition

Have you ever fancied yourself as a poet? Well this is your chance to prove it by entering your work into a poetry competition.

Young Essex Poet of the Year 2012

Free Poetry competition open to anyone 16 or under living in, or attending school in, Essex.   Prizes will be awarded in four age categories.  The title ‘Essex Young Poet of the Year’ will be awarded to the overall winner.

Prizes (book tokens for first, second and third places in each category, and an additional prize to the overall winner) will be presented on 8th October at a venue in Chelmsford.  Presentation details will be sent to all prize winners and their schools in September.

In addition, approximately 30 of the  best entries will be published in a children’s poetry anthology, copies of which will be on sale at the presentation.
Copies of last year’s anthology are available at a cost of £2.50 + 50p post and packing.

Entry to the competition is simple. Just write clearly or word process the poem with its title, and attach it securely, with a second copy, to the completed entry form, available here

We recommend that you also keep a copy yourself!
Post your entry to by July 31st 2012.
