Only one poem per pupil may be entered, each a maximum of 16 lines in English, Scots or Gaelic (with English translation). Clearly written or typed entries should be sent with details of the poem title, pupil's name and age, school name, address, telephone number and contact teacher's name to Poems to Post!, Scottish Book Trust, 137 Dundee Street, Edinburgh EH11 1BG.
