The Foyle Young Poets Award is looking for new young poets aged 11-17.
100 winners (85 Commendations and 15 Overall Winners) will be selected and will receive their awards at an annual prize-giving event on National Poetry Day on the 3rd of October.
The overall winners from the 15-17 age category will attend a week-long intensive residential Arvon course where they will develop their creative writing skills alongside fellow poets. The winners from the 11-14 group will benefit from poetry residencies at their school followed by distance mentoring.
