We were overwhelmed by the response to our call for additional young writers for Becoming a Poet to be published by Bloomsbury in 2024. What great young talents there are out in the world!
An additional eight Young Poets from UNESCO Cities of Literature will be writing short chapters for us about their work. If you applied, please check your email this weekend as invitations went out on Thursday 3rd Nov and you now need you to acknowledge these.
A number of other young poets have been chosen to showcase their exciting work on this website. We are looking forward to introducing them and sharing their poems with you over the next few months. Again, could I ask poets, parents, mentors and teachers check their emails for our message?
Thank you to colleagues from UNESCO Cities of Literature and The Poetry Society who supported us so effectively with this call and to Etienne Girardet on Unsplash for the great photo.
