Poetry from Home

While we’re all at home, we’ll be finding new ways to bring you poems and projects to keep us all connected for the duration. Keep checking back for the latest news.

  • For World Poetry Day on 21 March, we launched a new filmpoem: Polite Safety Notice by Aindri C, based on Mark Fiddes’s poem of the same name, which won third prize in the 2018 National Poetry Competition.
  • We’ve created a new Learning from Home page, which bundles up dozens of education resources for teachers, parents, carers and students of all ages who suddenly find themselves homeschooling.
  • We announced the winners of the 2019 National Poetry Competition with a Zoom celebration, and all the winners and commended poets recorded at-home-films of their poems for you to watch.
  • Here’s a selection of some of the best writing challenges from our Young Poets’ Network – they’re good for more experienced writers too!

Coming soon – a new project for NaPoWriMo .
