Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2017

The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2017, for poems by writers aged 11-17, is now OPEN!

Each year 100 winners (15 top winners and 85 commended) are selected by a team of high profile judges – this year Sinéad Morrissey and Kayo Chingonyi!

Find out how to enter on the Competition Website.

The judges cannot wait to read this year’s entries, and perhaps even spend a week writing poetry with the winners at the prize winners’ writing retreat.
