Poetry Competition

A new addition to the ISA Arts calendar, we are excited to invite pupils to take part in our Poetry Competition coming this September. A fantastic opportunity for pupils at ISA Members’ Schools to showcase their writing skills within the world of poetry.

Inspired by the lyrical book ‘If All the World Were’ by award winning poet Joseph Coelho we invite pupils to write a poem with the same title.

Competition open to KS1/2, KS3/4 and KS5.

Opening date for entries: Monday 23 September 2019
Deadline to enter: Friday 29 November 2019
