There’s a brand new competition – I Love My Family. Click on the “competition link” to find out more.

Poo Poo Poo! Rude poems can be very funny but be warned – if you send us poems about farts, bottoms or poo they won’t be appearing in the Poetry Zone. So please stop sending us rude poems. 

And do please remember that all the poems you send should be your own original work.

If you haven’t already done so, check out the winners of our other competitions. Winners of Christmas Poems, Scary Poems, Lost and Found and the National Poetry Day competitions can be found by clicking on “Poems” and then scrolling down to “Competition Entries”.

Since 1998 The Poetry Zone has published around 20,000 poems by young people and had millions of visitors – children and teenagers, real live poets and other adults who want to check us out, especially teachers who use the Poetry Zone as a fun way of teaching poetry in their schools. Do spread the word!

Somebody’s birthday? Why not give a poetry book? There are some brilliant books around. Here are four suggestions. Click here
