Shoot for the Moon: a Poetry Challenge

Calling all young poets aged 5-25! Enter your unpublished poems about the moon into this new Young Poets Network challenge for your chance to be part of the Moon Festival: the largest event celebrating this mysterious rock in the sky. This festival is celebrating 50 years since the moon landings, but we're asking young writers and spoken word artists to respond to the mythical, cultural, magical aspects of that big rock in the sky.

Selected poets will be published on Young Poets Network and sent an exclusive Young Poets Network notebook as well as poetry goodies. The winning poets in this challenge will also be invited to perform at a special Poetry Society event at Moon Festival in Greenwich on Friday 19 July 2019.

The challenge will be judged by poet Nii Parkes.

Entry is free - so what's to lose?
