The Caterpillar is delighted to announce its inaugural poetry prize - for a single poem written by an adult for children (aged 7-11). What we are looking for is a stand-out poem to which we can award a prize of €1,000 to celebrate the richness of children’s writing.

The Prize is open to everyone. The work must be original and previously unpublished. The entry fee is €12 per poem and you can enter as many poems as you like.
