Competitions for Children and Young People

National Poetry Day Schools Competition 2018

To celebrate National Poetry Day 2018 we are delighted to launch a special competition with Hamish Hamilton, publishers of The Lost Words.

The Lost Words is a joyful celebration of nature words and the natural world they invoke. With acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, it captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages and fascinates children. Enter this special competition to bring the magic into your classroom and inspire your pupils. There are signed copies to be won plus £100s worth of books for your school library.

Thank you to Robert Macfarlane who will choose the winning entries

Two age groups: 7-9 and 10-12.

Closes 5 November 2018
