Write a poem on the the theme Onwards, upwards, freedom - and win a paid gig!

Poetry on Loan - West Midlands poetry competition 2017

It's time for our third poetry competition! You should have seen in your local library a poster advertising Poetry on Loan’s 2017 poetry competition, open to anyone who lives, studies or works regularly in the West Midlands. If there’s no poster in your local library, then feel free to tell them that there should be one!

The prize is, for adult entries, a paid performance as part of a Poetry on Loan event - so it’s really worth having a go! The junior prize winner will receive book tokens.

It’s free to enter, but it’s really important that you stick to the rules. Look at all the details on our Competition page. Why not give it a try?
