Calling young poets: deadline nears for Agincourt competition
Youngsters are being invited to take up a poetry challenge about the battle of Agincourt, celebrated in Shakespeare’s Henry V, to help mark the battle’s 600th anniversary earlier this year. The Agincourt 600 poetry competition, created by the Poetry Society’s Young Poets Network in partnership with Agincourt 600, invites young people to find out about the history and legacy of the battle and to create a poem that explores Henry V's famous victory afresh. The competition has two age categories, one for primary school children and one for secondary school children with a winner in each category. Prizes will include a certificate, £100 of book tokens and a day of poetry workshops at the winners’ school. Runners-up will receive £50 of book tokens. The deadline is 31 January 2016. More details
