This competition is designed to encourage newcomers young and old to “have a go” at poetry.

“The poem can be about something or someone from the poet’s home area,” explained United Press Publications Executive, Julie Embury. “It can be descriptive, historic, romantic, factual,or personal – anything you like, as long as there is a local connection. Winning entries so far have been about towers, a river, village life, and local history. This competition is open to anyone and is completely free to enter – so what have you got to lose?”
