Poetry Competition – time is running out! Last entry date is 31st October.

Did you manage to come up with a poem about ‘Stars’ over the school holidays? We only have a couple of poems in so far and would love it if you can support us by sending in your entries via the Contact Us form. The judge, Ron Butlin (Edinburgh Makar – poet laureate), is looking forward to reading your compositions.

How to Enter:

  • Age groups: 5-8 years, 9-12 years, 13-18 years.
  • Format: Maximum 25 lines on the theme ‘Stars’. All poems must include a title.
  • Include your Name, Address, Age and Contact Email Address with your entry.
  • Send in your entry using the ‘Contact Us‘ form.
  • Handwritten entries will be accepted from younger entrants (deliver to the post box at The Rowans, Garvald). These entries will not be returned, so please keep a copy. Please note that we would prefer entries are made via the website. On handwritten entries, please put your name and contact information on the back of the poem, to ensure that judging is anonymous.
