Peter & Ann judging the Buxton Poetry Competition 2012

Peter and Ann are judging the Buxton Poetry Competition again this year.

"We hope you will think of entering the Buxton Poetry Competition, which we are judging again this year.  The theme this time is actually broader than it looks -- if you have a poem already that fits the bill, or can think of writing something new for it, please do give it a go." — Ann & Peter

To celebrate the 2012 Olympics and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee our theme this year is 'Welcome to Britain'. Use this theme to celebrate what's special about our country, highlight current issues, inspire reflection on being British or consider our impact on the environment and culture.

Open Poetry - for poets aged 19 and over

Young People's Poetry - for poets ages 12 to 18

Children's Poetry - for poets aged 11 and under.

DEADLINE: 5 April 2012
