Welcome....

Poetry Rivals is back for 2016! This exciting and well respected national poetry competition provides young poets from across the UK with the opportunity to be published alongside other poets and the chance to perform at the Slam Final.

We are inviting poets to submit a poem on any subject and in any poetic style. Whether you want to put the world to rights through rap, make people laugh with a humorous verse or maybe show your softer side by writing a love piece about someone special, we want to read it!

You could find yourself performing in front of a panel of judges and a live audience, with the chance of bagging one of these top prizes - your height in books (Under 12s), or the choice of an Aspiring Author Package or £500 (12 Plus)!

Closing Date: Closed
