Young Writers have recently launched War of Words, their brand new conflict-themed poetry competition for pupils in local schools.
From learning about the difference between war and conflict, the different types of conflict to poetic techniques and examples to analyse, War of Words is a complete writing project that gives pupils the freedom to explore a sensitive subject and write about it in their own words.
With National Poetry Day on October 2, it’s time to bring poetry to life in homes and schools across the nation.
War of Words is free to enter and both schools and pupils could win themselves prizes as well as see their poem in print.
All our competition information and resources can be downloaded for free at www.youngwriters.co.uk/competitions/war-of-words.php.
