Wishing a you a WONDERFUL, CREATIVE and POETRY-FILLED 2015

Here are the Christmas Competition winners. So many brilliant entries! We gave four runners up awards – no prize I’m afraid but very well done. It was so close!
The winners were Elqui Johnston, Veda Dharwar and Chloe Smith.
Runners up were Joseph Wisher, Katie Parfett, Iona Mandal, Kaytlyn and Patsy.
Well done everyone who entered. Watch out for a new competition starting soon.

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 the Scary Poems Competition, the Lost and Found competition, the National Poetry Day competition and all our other competitions by clicking on “Poems” and then scrolling down to “Competition Entries”. There you’ll find all the winners.

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

Competition!
