Poetry Competition

Hospice Hope is delighted to announce an exciting new summer poetry competition, which opens on July 1st for all children of primary school age living in North West Leicestershire.  The theme is “HOPE” and children are encouraged to explore ideas around what this word means to them.

Poems will be judged by a professional panel of well-known authors, poets and judges including Gregory Heath (novelist), Victoria Barber (previous judge of the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway book awards), Jess Green (performance poet and BBC Slam Champ), Ben Norris (poet, playwright, actor, BBC Slam Champ and poet-in-residence of Nottinghamshire Libraries) and Susan Browne (author).   

There are some amazing prizes to be won, including an Amazon Fire 8 HD kids edition and a family membership to Conkers.  All shortlisted poems will go on display at Coalville Library in October, as part of their celebrations for National Poetry Day.  The winner will also have their poem published and on display at Hope House. 

Look out for the posters and join us on social media, using the hashtag #HHPoetryComp
