Buxton Poetry Competition

Buxton Poetry Competition 2016 – DEADLINE EXTENDED!

The entry deadline for the Buxton Poetry Competition has been extended until 26th September 2016. 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
