Poetry Together Competition

Cross-generational competition invites children and young people to pair up with a parent, grandparent, carer, older sibling or friend, to share their ideas and create brand new poetry.

The aim is to bring people together creatively, whilst also raising awareness and fundraising for The Co-operative’s Charity Partnership with the British Red Cross, to tackle loneliness in communities across the UK. Reconnecting generations and getting people talking; it’s poetry in action!

Judges: Carol Ann Duffy, with guest poets Gillian Clarke and Martin Kratz.

Prizes: Each adult and child will receive 100 copies of their poem, professionally designed as postcards that they can share with friends.

The overall winners will be announced at the event and both adult and child will receive the Poetry Together award and a £250 gift voucher.
