  1. Hi, I am interested in writing a story that will hopefully inspire young Muslim girls to reach their full potential and workout the difficulties of being a young Muslim girl.

    1. Hi Noor,

      That’s great to hear! Best of luck in the Young Muslim Writers Awards! Have a look around Young Poets Network for more challenges, and keep writing,

    1. Hi Madiha,

      Thanks for your comment. Young Poets Network doesn’t run this competition (or any of our competitions on our Poetry Opportunities page) but I looked on their website and it says July 31, 2018.

      Best of luck!

    1. Hi Aiza,

      Thanks for your comment. We don’t run this competition, but I’ve looked on their website and they state: ‘All entrants must be living in the United Kingdom.’ I’m sorry about this! If you’re interested in entering other writing challenges, Young Poets Network challenges are open to all poets up to the age of 25 across the world. It’s always free to enter our challenges.

      At the moment we have two challenges open:

      Thinking Outside the Penalty Box asks for poems inspired by extraordinary African lives, and offers the chance of print publication and up to £100 in book vouchers (we can convert this into your currency, don’t worry!): ypn.poetrysociety.org.uk/workshop/thinking-outside-the-penalty-box-poetry-challenge/ (closes 28 February – so get your skates on!)

      Nearlyology is a challenge asking you to explore what has nearly happened to you, and how it’s changed your 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/

      Best of luck!

    1. Hello,

      Thanks for your comment. We don’t run this competition, but if you’re interested in entering other writing challenges, Young Poets Network challenges are open to all poets up to the age of 25 across the world. It’s always free to enter our challenges. She can enter our Bletchley Park challenge inspired by the work done there during the Second World War: bit.ly/bletchleychallenge

      Your daughter is very welcome to enter her poem into the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award when it re-opens next year in March. This is the biggest poetry competition for 11-17 year olds anywhere in the world: foyleyoungpoets.org
