Still time to enter for Agincourt 600 Poetry Competition – deadline 31 Jan

There’s just under 1 week left to enter the Agincourt 600 Poetry Competition! The Young Poets Network is partnering with Agincourt 600 to get young poets grappling with the history of this fascinating battle, a landmark event in European history.

Judged by acclaimed poet Daljit Nagra, the competition is open to young writers aged 5-18 from the UK, and the deadline is 31 January 2016 – so there’s still time for young poets to enter and be in with the chance of winning some brilliant prizes, including a poet visit to their school.

There are currently four challenges live on the Young Poets Network to inspire entries. From taking on the voice of a common soldier, to following the story of a mysterious lost object, to rediscovering the history of an elusive saint, these challenges are full of ideas to inspire poetry about an extraordinary piece of history. 

For teachers, there are also four separate resources to help encourage entries from students at both primary and secondary level.

Find out more about the competition, the challenges, and how to enter here.
