As a part of the 2022 Somerset Storyfest, secondary school-aged students are invited to participate in the Somerset National Poetry Prize.
The purpose of the Somerset National Poetry Prize is to encourage a love of writing poetry amongst secondary school students, to affirm it as a worthwhile literary pursuit, and to stimulate excellence in writing. It also aims to inspire and enrich youth literature.
There are two categories to enter: a Junior Category for Years 7-9, and a Senior Category to 10-12.
Each category winner will be awarded:
- Cash prizes
- Flights and accommodation to the Gold Coast
- Tickets to attend Somerset Storyfest (15 to 17 March 2022)
- Exclusive access to meet with Australia’s elite authors and publicists
Entries are open until Friday 3 December.
