Summer’s here! And so is the new Summer competition. Check it out.

Winners of our previous competitions – Love My Family, Christmas Poems, Scary Poems, and Lost and Found can be located by clicking on “Poems” and then scrolling down to “Competition Entries”.

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.

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
