Enter the Storytime Magazine poetry competition

Budding poets aged 3-9 years can go wild, creating an animal-themed poem

This is a great opportunity for children to show just how creative they can be, by writing a short animal-themed poem. It can be a real or imaginary animal, silly or serious, rhyming or non-rhyming, you decide.

Who can enter?

The competition is open to children aged 3-9, and the poem must be an original piece of work, between 12 and 20 lines long.

See your poem in print!

The best entry will be printed in Storytime Magazine, so the winner will become a published author in an international magazine! Illustrations for the winning poem will be specially commissioned and there's also a bundle of poetry books to be won.

Who's the Judge?

Entries will be judged by leading children’s poet Brian Moses. He’s sold over one million books, given over 2,500 poetry performances, taught in schools all over the country, and even written a poem for the Queen!

Deadline for entries is Wednesday 12 October.
