Children! School teachers! Live Canon have a Children’s Poetry Competition for young people aged 5-18 – the deadline is January 21st, 2018.
Entries are judged in four categories by school year: years 1-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-13.
Poems can be entered by individuals, or by schools.
100 winning poems will be published in their 2018 children’s anthology and all contributors will receive a complimentary copy. The winner in each age category will receive a £50 book token. There’s also a prize for the school who send the best set of entries.
