  1. Hello,

    I would like to submit my daughter’s poem. My information is below. I am a PBS member.

    Thank you,
    Michele Coen

    1. Hi Michele,

      Thanks for your message. We are not affiliated with the Poetry Book Society so I would advise you check their website. They haven’t opened the competition again just yet for 2018.

      However, we would also love to receive poetry by your daughter in our free Young Poets Network challenges. She might be interested in the challenge we currently have open, inspired by the enigmatic and inviting work of poet W.S. Graham. Enter a Cloud, Imagine a Forest now: bit.ly/wsgchallenge

      If she is aged 11-17, she is also eligible for the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award, with life-changing prizes such as mentoring, poetry books and more: foyleyoungpoets.org t’s one of the biggest competitions for young poets in the world!

      To keep up to date on all we offer young poets, you can also join our free mailing list: http://ypn.poetrysociety.org.uk/sign-up-to-young-poets-network/

      I hope this is helpful, and best of luck with her writing!

      Best wishes,

      Helen at Young Poets Network
