    1. Hi Arnit,

      Thanks for your comment. This competition isn’t run by Young Poets Network, but I would advise you to email elizabeth@customshouse.co.uk to ask.

      It’s great to hear you’re a keen writer. If you would be interested in entering one of Young Poets Network’s competitions, these are always free to enter and open to poets of all ages up to 25 from across the world. Currently we have open our Nearlyology challenge. This is a challenge asking young writers to explore what has nearly happened to them, and how it’s changed their life. Enter by 11 March for the chance of publication on YPN and an exclusive notebook as well as other poetry goodies. ypn.poetrysociety.org.uk/workshop/nearlyology-a-new-poetry-challenge/

      If you’d like me to add you to the Young Poets Network (YPN) ebulletin, that will keep you up to date on a monthly basis on new competitions and opportunities for young writers.

      Do let me know!

      Helen at Young Poets Network
