If you’re an emerging poet, an avid reader, an enthusiastic performer or just starting out in poetry then Young Poets Network has something for you. Teachers and parents might find it a useful resource, too.

The Young Poets Network is The Poetry Society’s online platform for young poets up to the age of 25. Here you’ll find features about poets and poetry, challenges and competitions to inspire your own writing, new writing from young poets, and advice and guidance from the rising and established stars of the poetry scene. We also bring you the latest news and ideas from the writing world, and a list of competitions, magazines and writing groups which particularly welcome young writers.
