A competition has been launched to find 25 poems for a poetry trail in a Huddersfield park. The 21-acre Beaumont Park, the first public park in Huddersfield, combines formal avenues and boulevards with disused railway lines, woodland walks and Pennine views. Poets including Lemn Sissay, Ian McMillan, Gez Walsh, Julia Deakin and Winston Plowes are helping in the creation of the trail, by providing examples of their poetry, assisting with the judging, and presenting the prizes at the presentation in March 2016. The 25 winning poems will be permanently fixed within sight of footpaths within the park, and published in a book. Entry is free, and the deadline is 25 December. More details
