Please send in poems as soon as possible for next term when the guest poet will be Philip Gross. His collection for teenagers, Scratch City, was published by Faber last year and his earlier book of poems for young people, The All-Night Cafe (also Faber) won the Signal Award in 1993.

Philip Gross, a novelist and playwright as well as a poet for both adults and children, has run workshops in schools for 10 years and is a lecturer in creative studies at Bath College of Higher Education. His new novel, Transformer, will be published later this year in Scholastic's Point Horror series.

Poems up to 20 lines long, on any subject, should be sent to The TES, Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1 9XY. Please include the poet's name, age and school address and the teacher's name.
