Fifty years ago, on July 20th, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on the Moon. To celebrate this – we’d like you to write a poem about the Moon. You can write about the Moon, as seen from the Earth; about the magic and myths that surround the Moon; about the Moon landing or about space travel in general. Your poem can be long or short, rhyming or non-rhyming, funny or serious, and in any style – it’s up to you.
We have six copies of Moonstruck! Poems about our Moon (Otter-Barry) edited by Roger Stevens to give as prizes.
Write your poem in the competition box below. And make sure you include your email address so that we can contact you if you win. You don’t have to be come from the UK to enter but poems must be in English. And you must be aged between 3 and 18 years old to enter. Poems MUST be your own work.
The six winners, plus the best of the poems entered will be featured here in August. The competition closes on July 26th, 2019.
