Buxton Poetry Competition
Buxton Poetry Competition 2015 – Now Open!
The 2015 Buxton Poetry Competition is now open. Our theme this year is TIME. You might like to focus on a moment in time, or explore the passing of time or perhaps focus on a timepiece. You could write about something huge or you could focus on something tiny. You could tell us how time affects you. 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 TIME.
Open Poetry — ages 18 and over
Young People’s Poetry — aged between 12 and 17
Children’s Poetry — aged up to 11 years old
The competition closing date is 20th April 2015. All poems must be sent by post with a completed entry form to Buxton Festival, 3 The Square, Buxton, SK17 6AZ. Cheques payable to Buxton Festival. Click here to download an entry pack -Buxton Poetry Entry Form 2015
