Wild Words Eco-Poetry Project

24th October 2023

‘Imagine Co-Writing a Poem with a Tree, River, or Even the Weather…’

Wild Words is a new cross-species poetry project for young people aged 18 and under from the UK.

Young writers are asked to collaborate with an element of their local environment, be it a flower, insect, bird, tree, natural landscape, or even the weather, and craft an original piece of poetry. All submissions will be published online and across social media channels, and 50 poems will be published in a new eBook anthology.

The deadline for entries is 19th November 2023 and it’s free to enter.

Entry details and many useful resources can be found on Theatre In The Rough’s website for the project here.

The project is supported by The Hays Travel Foundation and Save the Children UK.
