Event Details

The Morrab Library has partnered with the Dennis Myner Trust for the second Patricia Eschen Prize for Poetry.

The children’s competition is open to entries from young writers all over the world and has two age categories – aged 4 to 11 and 12 to 17.

It is free to enter and does not have a theme, to allow you to express your creativity freely and let your imagination run wild!

It is not necessary to have good spelling or perfect grammar to enter – poems will be judged on originality and creativity, rather than how they are executed.

All entries must be submitted by an adult capable of giving permission on behalf of the child: a parent/guardian or the child’s teacher who has obtained the parent or guardian’s permission.

We are keen to encourage quality, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
