Created by Red Room Poetry, in collaboration with The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan, POEM FOREST deepens our connection with nature by inviting students, teachers and communities to create and publish poems inspired by the natural environment. For every poem received, a native tree will be planted in the Australian Botanic Garden to help heal critically endangered habitats and create a POEM FOREST for future generations.
POEM FOREST encourages young people to use their words to make positive climate action through poetry. All POEM FOREST entries will be published and in the running for $5,000 worth of prizes, including $500 cash for each category, book packs from Copyright Agency and Magabala Books, as well as Garden tours, trees and publication opportunities.
Submissions close Friday 17 September.
