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.
