Today I am launching a poetry competition for young people to write about any aspect of Covid19. Please read the rules before sending your entry off!
The poems can be in any style, rhyming or non-rhyming, funny or serious.
You could write about Covid19 in metaphorical terms – as a tiger prowling the streets, perhaps.
Maybe you want to express how Covid19 makes you feel; what would you like to say to it?
How would you banish it, and where?
Maybe you’d like to write about how your days have changed, what you have been up to during your time with your family, the good things that have happened, things you have enjoyed about being home for an extended time. Think of the little details.
Your poems can be about anything to do with life as it is now.
Please read carefully!
PLEASE STATE YOUR:
on your entry which should all TYPED, no photos of poems, on ONE Word document, NOT in the body of the mail.
Do NOT send photos of written poems or Google documents or anything other than a Word or Pages document.
Send them in by June 15th to the email address under Contact in the menu above.
Do not post your poems online.
The wonderful Roger Stevens of PoetryZone is going to judge!
There are no age-brackets – the competition is open to young people in the UK up to the age of 13, and there will be book prizes, including the following:
