calling all budding poets!

calling all budding poets!

***This competition is now closed. Thank you to those who sent us amazing poems.***

We are proud to announce the launch of a children’s poetry competition, based on the legendary inhabitant of Lake Windermere, the Char Fish with our friends at the Windermere Jetty Museum

Budding poets are invited to write a fun and imaginative poem about Char and their companion Krill who - after a long journey from their home in the Arctic - have arrived in the perfectly cold waters of the Lake Windermere.

We would love if the poem explored some of these themes: How did they get there? Who are their neighbours? Do they make any friends? What adventures do they get up to in the Lake? Who do they meet? How do they feel? 

The selected poems will form part of an exhibition launching in 2023. 

All entries must be submitted to by October 7th 2022.

Prizes include:

This competition is open to all children aged 12 and under from anywhere around the world. One entry per child. Winners will be selected and notified by October 14th.

Good luck and thank you!
