Let’s Celebrate!!!

Hi everyone. It’s time for a new competition. This was suggested by one of our regular visitors.

Send us a poem about celebrations. You could write about a birthday, passing your exams, having a party or leaving school. Or you could write about celebrating the coming of spring or summer. Or maybe some other celebration. It’s up to you.

Poems can be long, short, rhyming or non-rhyming, and in any style. Funny, serious or sad. You may enter as many poems as you like. But remember, we are looking for originality. We suggest you write the poem first, save it on your computer, then cut and paste it into the form. Do double check it – make sure it says what you want it to say, that it has a nice, flowing rhythm and check your spellings.

We have four copies of the brilliant Zooming the Zoo by John Dougherty (Otter-Barry Books) 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 British or come from the UK to enter but poems must be in English. And you must be between 3 and 18 years old to enter. Poems MUST be your own work.

All poems entered will be shown in the Poetry Zone in July. The competition closes on Friday 28th June 2024. Good luck!
