What do I need to do?

This week we have an exciting opportunity to write a poem based on the theme: ‘Happy Memories’ or ‘If I Ruled the World’ for a poetry competition. Your poem should be at least 14 lines and no more than 30 lines long. It can be written in any poetical style. Your poem can either be handwritten or word-processed- you may include simple illustrations.

Please make sure you put your name, age and class clearly on the back of your entry.

The winners of the competition can attend a prize-winners event at the United Reformed Church on Wednesday 12th July where certificates and prizes will be given out, you will also be invited to read your poem out. It is hoped that there will then be an exhibition of the winning poems and an anthology will be published.

Why?

To write for a real purpose and audience

Date Due: Monday 12th June
