If you would like to take part and put pen to paper for a chance to win some prizes. The lucky winner will see their work printed in Fetch and become the YKC Young Poet of the Year!
The theme for your poem is DOGS. There are no style or length restrictions but it should be stressed that a short poem is just as likely to be selected as a longer one. It can rhyme or not rhyme, be written out like a shape or simply line by line – there was no right or wrong!
The poem needs to relate to the theme. Try using descriptions that create interesting and memorable images. Please create a poem that anyone 6 years and older would enjoy.
The poems will be judged by age group of under 12 years, 12 years and over and over 18 years, with a winning poem picked from each age group. Each winner will receive a £25 book voucher - the perfect prize for any young book-lover and aspiring poet!
One lucky poet will be chosen to be the competition's overall winner. This exceptional young writer will have their poem published in Fetch Magazine, win a £50 book voucher and a year’s free membership.
