Welcome to The Poetry Zone!
Thanks everyone who entered the Off By Heart competition. The winners are here. Go to Poems and then scroll down to Competition Entries and you’ll find them. We had a huge entry – and the standard was very high. Well done everyone who entered. And good luck in our new competition – Lost and Found.
Poo poo poo... Yes, poems with poo and other slighty rude words can be very funny. But if you send us poo poems they won’t be appearing in the Poetry Zone. So please stop sending us rude poems.
And if you haven’t already done so, check out the winners of our Worms, War Poems and Hey, Little Bugs competitions. Click on “Poems” and then scroll down to “Competition Entries” to find the winners and best of all the 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!
