The poems

Download and complete the school entry form and submit in the same way as the poems. Please submit poems as a document with the poet’s name or a unique identifying pupil number and school marked clearly at the top of each page.

Poems not marked in this way will not be eligible for entry into the competition.

Due to new data protection laws (GDPR) we understand that all of us must ensure that people’s data is collected with permission. When entering the Foyle Young Poet of the Year Award, if the policy of your school/organisation is not to share student names, please use a unique pupil number by which you can later identify the student. If you are having any difficulties entering students into the competition using this form due to your school/organisation’s GDPR policies please contact The Poetry Society at [email protected] or 020 7420 9880 and we will be happy to help.

Please submit the poems in one of the following formats:

  • Word document
  • PDF document
  • JPEG or PNG image file

N.B. You can upload multiple files at once by selecting them from the file browser window. Press and hold the Shift (windows) or cmd (mac) key while selecting files.

To save time we suggest when entering more than one student into the competition that you scan all of your student’s poems and the class entry form as one document and then upload this to the entry system. That way we will have all of your entries in one document. If you are having any difficulty uploading school entries then please contact [email protected]

Please make sure you have included both the class entry form and the poems in the file(s) you upload.
