Let’s Make! Festival – Let’s Make Poetry Competition

Everyone at Halton Libraries loves poetry and we are well aware that Halton has some incredibly talented poets of all ages. Therefore, as part of our Let’s Make! festival, we’re launching a poetry competition.

We would like you to compose a poem around the theme of The Power of Books. It can be in any style of poetry whether that be a haiku, free verse, acrostic or even a limerick!

There are 3 categories:

  • 6-11 years
  • 12-16 years
  • 17+ years


The competition will be open to submissions from 1st March and entries must be in by Wednesday 31st March.

To enter, please send your poems during that time to trudy.jones@halton.gov.uk.

The winners will be announced in April. Submitted poems will be posted on libraries’ social media and made up into a special booklet that will be available to pick up from libraries. There will also be a prize for each category winner.
