The contest is organised by The Caterpillar, a magazine of poems and stories and art for grown-ups.
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.
The winning poem will feature in the summer 2017 issue of The Caterpillar.
The work must be original and previously unpublished.
Entries must be in English
The entry fee is €12 per poem.
A single prize of €1,000 will be awarded to the best poem.
