Buxton Poetry Competition

Buxton Poetry Competition 2016 – now open!

Buxton Poetry Competition is now open for entries. Our theme in 2016 is Hidden. You might like to focus on an item which has been hidden, a person or thing that is hiding, a hidden place or a hidden feeling. You could write about a very broad subject or you could focus in on a tiny detail. Or if you have a different take on our theme we would like to read that too!

This year we have new judges and bigger prizes – so get writing!

Open Poetry — ages 18 and over
Young People’s Poetry — aged between 12 and 17
Children’s Poetry — aged up to 11 years old
