The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2013 is now open for entries. Poets aged 11-17 are invited to submit their work. The competition is free to enter and poems can be of any length and on any theme. Individuals may enter more than one poem, however we strongly advise that you concentrate on drafting and redrafting your poems and send only a selection (we suggest no more than 6-8 absolute maximum) of your very best. The top 100 poems will be chosen and published in a mini anthology. The closing date for entries is 31st July 2013. Click here for more information.
This year’s festival takes place over two days: Saturday 15th June in the Wales Millennium Centre/ Cardiff Bay, and on Sunday 16th June there will be a film festival in the Chapter Arts Centre.
This event will be a FREE event open to the public. It is a joint event with the Cardiff Cycle Festival 2013, which is a 15 day festival running from 15 – 30th June with a range of exciting events for all ages. It is all about the joy of cycling and aims to encourage everyone in the community, whether they cycle or not, to join together and organise events to celebrate and promote cycling (click here for more details).
