World Book Day Christmas Poem Competition!

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!

Details are here.
