An invitation to Dunedin’s young poets – celebrate National Poetry Day 2015

from WriteNow:

We want to hear from Dunedin’s talented young poets. All secondary school writers (years 9-13) from Palmerston to Dunedin to Milton are invited to submit poems to the Dunedin Secondary Schools Poetry Competition.

Three poems will be selected to be featured on billboard posters distributed as part of National Poetry Day celebrations to shops, libraries and all Dunedin intermediate and secondary schools.

The three winning poets will each receive a $50 book token from the University Book Shop. In addition each winning poet will have the opportunity to read their work alongside three of New Zealand’s renowned poets – Dunedin’s David Eggleton and Carolyn McCurdie and Wellington’s Hinemoana Baker – as part of Dunedin’s National Poetry Day event on Friday 28 August at the Dunningham Suite, Dunedin Public Library. Winning and highly commended poems will also be published on the website:

Entries will be judged blind by Dunedin poet David Eggleton.
