Poet in the house
Home is the theme of Poet in the House, the first of hopefully five annual competitions.
Two winning poems (from P3-P7s and S1-S4s) will be printed on posters and distributed to every school in Scotland and a poet and visual artist will lead creative writing workshops in the winners' schools. Also, the winners will be invited to join the judging for next year's competition.
A free pack for teachers includes a ready-to-go lesson plan, six new poems about homes by Scottish poets and large photo flashcards featuring a range of housing.
The deadline for entries is March 31. For more information see www.spl.org.ukyoungpeople
