Poetry Idol 2023

All Ages

Who do you idolise?

We’re inviting you to write a poem about your favourite person. Who do you idolise? Is it your mum or dad? Your best friend? Your brother or sister? Perhaps there is a famous person, from a sports or film star to an author or musician, that you admire and aspire to be like.

Why are they your favourite person and why do they inspire you?

Grab your pen and get writing! From haikus and rhymes to acrostics and everything in-between, we welcome your poem in any style and format celebrating your poetry idol.

Selected poems will feature in a special anthology and our favourite poet will win a selection of books!

Prizes
