The Night Before Christmas

Apologies if you have been trying to send us a poem for the competition. We are now up and running again – and so you can now send us your poem. We are extending the deadline until January 1st. 

Send us a poem about Christmas and you could win one of three books of Christmas poems gathered together by Gaby Morgan and wonderfully illustrated by Axel Scheffler. Your poems can be long, short, in rhyme or in any other kind of style. They can be sad, happy or funny. All the poems will be published in the Competition section as the competition progresses and on the Night Before Christmas we’ll choose the three winners.

Poems must be in English and you must be between 3 and 18 years old to enter. You may enter as many poems as you like. 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. (And remember, the competition closes at midnight on Christmas Eve.) Good luck!
