Get your poet’s pen poised, get your rhyming dictionary ready,

Find your inner Edward Lear, your Shelley or Rossetti…

This is a year long poetry competition with crowhurst community arts.

All forms of poetry are welcome – funny or philosophical, limerick or epic, couplets or sonnets, haiku or acrostic, rhyming or free verse. We’d love to receive artwork to go with your poem, and you can enter as many times as you like. There will be adult and junior categories, you can use a pseudonym if you prefer, and entries will be published throughout the year, in the Crowhurst News and on this website. There will be public voting and prizes in March 2018, and we will be donating £1 for every entry received to St Michael’s Hospice (up to £100).
