Young writers urged to discover a utopian world of poetry

Poetopia is Young Writers’ brand new, exciting poetry competition for young writers aged 11-18 years.

Young Writers is inviting 11-18 year-olds and their schools to discover Poetopia. Poetopia has been inspired by current popular teen utopian/dystopian novels and Young Writers have created a poetry world like no other … “Choose. Comply. Create.”

Take part in Poetopia’s fun faction activity and see which poetic faction you are most suited to. Poetopia offers 6 factions to choose from and each has a different theme to inspire pupils with their poetry. From current affairs to standing up for something you believe in, Poetopia is a fresh way of encouraging and motivating young adults to enjoy writing poetry.

Each poem submitted to Poetopia will be read by Young Writers’ editorial team and considered for a regional anthology. Published poets will then be in with the chance of being chosen as the best poet in their faction! Thanks to HarperCollins Children’s Books there are 5 box sets of Divergent series to giveaway plus a £40 book token. There are cash prizes for schools too! You can view all Young Writers’ previous prize winners at www.youngwriters.co.uk/competitions-winners.

Poetopia is now open, you can find out further information at Young Writers’ website: www.youngwriters.co.uk/competitions/poetopia.php.
