To mark the 100th anniversary of the death of one of the foremost poets of his generation, Wilfred Owen, remembered as part of a group of war poets, The Royal Society of Literature has published an anthology, Peace Poetry, which you can read on their website.
They would like you write a poem about peace and what it means to you in response to the anthology.
Young Poets Network are calling for young poets aged 11-17 to enter the #FoyleYoungPoets of the Year Award before it closes, 4 weeks from today! If you are 11-17 it’s time to get your entry in; if you know a young writer help them get the word out. Entry is free and you could win books, mentoring and more: http://foyleyoungpoets.org
Why not enter the Forward/emagazine student critics competition, with separate categories for 14-16 year olds, 16-19 year-olds and teachers? Write a critical or creative response to one of the poems on the Forward Prizes for Poetry shortlist 2018.
If you are aged 5 to 18 and are excited by a chance to spread the Christmas spirit with poetry, World Book Day can’t wait to hear from you. They would like you to write a 12 line (for the 12 days of Christmas) poem.
The poem must be connected to the theme of Christmas but you can write about the season in any way you like; putting up the Christmas tree, doing the nativity at school or watching the Doctor Who Christmas special!
