The 2018 Suffolk Young Poets Competition is now closed for entries. This year's winners and commended poets will be contacted earlier in the autumn term.
The Suffolk Young Poets Competition is one of the UK’s oldest poetry showcases for children’s writing. Since 1989, the Competition has received nearly 35,000 entries – extraordinary for just one county.

Each year Poetry People runs workshops in Suffolk schools to encourage young writing talent and generate brilliant entries for the Competition. This year’s series of summer term workshops is called Growing Poems and will focus on schools in and around Suffolk’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
