Canterbury City Council’s Community Development Service are currently running a project, to create a mural on an underpass in the Westgate Parks in Canterbury, and want to include some poetry. They’re running a competition for young people and adults to choose three poems to display. The competition is free to enter, and writers can send up to 3 poems that capture the spirit of Canterbury past and present: its history, architecture, people and ecology. Please send them as a word document to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, address and whether you are over or under 18. The poems will be judged in 2 categories, 18 and under, and over 18s. One from each category will be chosen plus one other. The competition will be judged by Canterbury Laureate 2011-12 Sarah Salway. The winning poems will be displayed on 6′x4′ panels among the art work. Shortlisted writers may also be invited to read at a special event in the Westgate Parks on 29 June 2014 where the winners will be announced.
Entry Fee: £0
