Poetry competition: Foyle Young Poets of the Year
There's still time to enter the Poetry Society's major opportunity for poets aged between 11 and 17
Since its launch in 1998, The Foyle Young Poets Award has become the largest competition for young poets of its kind – last year there were more than 7,600 entries from the UK and worldwide.
100 winners each year are awarded their prizes at a high-profile event on National Poetry Day (85 commendations and 15 overall winners). The overall winners are published in the annual Foyle Anthology, and attend a week-long Arvon residential course or have a poetry residence in their school.
Poems may be on any theme. This year's judges are Kayo Chingonyi and Sinéad Morrissey.
Entry is free. The closing date is 31 July.
