Buxton Poetry Competition

Buxton Poetry Competition 2014 – Now Open!Poetry Comp Image 2014 - bought from Istock

Our theme in 2014 is The Natural World.  You might like to describe a landscape, an event in nature, or perhaps an animal. You could write about something huge or you could focus on something tiny. You could tell us how you engage with nature, or how the natural world affects you, or you could take us on a journey through the natural world. Or if you have a different take on our theme we would like to read that too! We hope this theme will inspire you to think creatively about The Natural World.
