Young Writers’ Poetry
Food is our theme this year. Competitors are invited to send poems about food of no more than 30 lines as follows:
Age group 6-11:
Write about your experiences with food. Your poem might be about your favourite food, focusing on the taste, texture or smell of something memorable you have eaten. Does a grandparent make a special dish? What would your dream meal consist of? Let your imagination wander!
Age group 12-16:
Write about food in relation to your life or your family. It might be a celebration or an occasion such as a picnic or meal out, or it might simply be about those everyday mealtimes or quick, takeaway food. What about your experiences of cooking or baking?
Each of the categories will offer prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and a framed certificate. Prizes will be awarded at an awards tea on June 28, 2014 in Winchester.
