Live Canon Children's Poetry Competition 2020

Live Canon is a leading UK poetry organisation, publishing and performing poetry across the UK. They perform the classics, launch debut collections and run evenings with celebrated modern poets like Inua Ellams and Glyn Maxwell.
This competition is a wonderful opportunity for children and young people to get into creative writing. There's a £50 book token for the winner in each age category, and a selection of books for the runners up. And most excitingly....100 poems will be selected to be published in Live Canon’s 2020 Children's Anthology and the young poets will be invited to an event on 10th May at Greenwich Theatre to launch the anthology and celebrate their work. There'll be a party, craft activities, cakes, and a prize-giving ceremony, where the Live Canon Ensemble will perform the twelve winning and runner-up poems. All information needed to submit can be found on their website. The deadline is the 29th March.

Parents and teachers of last year's poets have said their children were 'delighted', 'excited', 'thrilled', and 'overwhelmed' to be shortlisted. One teacher told us: 'the students were delighted to receive this news. It has really boosted their confidence’.
