Children's Poetry Bookshelf is running a competition for children aged 7-11. Old Possum’s Children’s Poetry Competition, with Michael Rosen chairing the judges, requires them to write a poem about "Work". This ties in with the theme for National Poetry Day 2008, which is on Thursday, October 9th. Entry forms can be downloaded from the Poetry Bookshelf site, as can materials for teachers to help children write their poems.
And of course, don't forget our own Jordanhill poetry page.
