We're back! And we're looking for new poems to delight and inspire young readers of The Caterpillar. If you've written a poem you think would appeal to 7–11-year olds, then why not enter this year's Caterpillar Poetry Prize? The poem can be on any subject, and there's no line limit.
We are very excited to have the incomparable John Hegley – poet, musician and comedian – to judge this year's prize! John has published several collections of poems, including a volume for children called My Dog is a Carrot. He also co-edited an anthology of poetry for young people called The Ropes: Poems To Hold On To. He’s a regular at Edinburgh Festival and on BBC Radio 4. His most recent collections are Peace, Love and Potatoes, New & Selected Potatoes and I am a Poetato.
The Prize is open to anyone (over 18), as long as the work is original and previously unpublished.
CLOSING DATE 31 MARCH 2017
