Youth poetry contest
TALENTED rappers and budding poets have just one week left to enter a top city competition.
Children are being encouraged to write a poem or rap about journeys into space in an attempt to become Peterborough Young Poets.
Poets and rap artists entering the Youth Laureate competition should be aged 12 to 18 years. They need to submit a poem or rap about “The Un- explained”. Entries need to be no more than 20 lines and the closing date is June 27. Entrants should either live or go to school in Peterborough.
A final will be held on July 13. The winners will then perform at a number of events across the city during the next year. For more information, contact Library Events on 01733 864287. Entries should be sent to Andrew.Upton@ vivacity-peterborough.com.
