The summer holidays have almost ended for most of us – and some of us have returned to school already! So there are just 10 more days to get your entry into my Sunny Summer Poetry Competition for primary school kids! If you haven’t submitted your entry yet, you’d better get your roller-blades on! See all the details on my Clever Competition page (tab located above). I can’t wait to read your entry!

And if you’d like to enter another competition, and you’re an Australian living anywhere in the world, and you’re between the ages of 7 and 18, there are just 7 days left in the Faraway Short Story Competition – see http://www.creativewriteit.com.au/faraway2016.html for details!

It’s summer at last, and things are heating up on the happy downward slide towards the summer holidays! So what better way to celebrate the holidays…and to fill in some lazy summer hours – than by entering my Sunny Summer Poetry Competition! (And my apologies in advance to my friends in the Southern Hemisphere, where of course winter has almost arrived. You’ll just have to imagine that summer is coming :)!

This time I’d like you to write me an original poem about all the things you love about summertime. It can be any one of the five following sorts of poem:rhyming verse; acrostic; haiku; limerick; free verse.

There will be two categories: Grades/Years One to Three and Grades/Years Four to Six. Students currently enrolled in Grade/Year 6 are all eligible to enter.

The deadline for your entries is Wednesday, 31st August 2016! So pick up those pens and start writing! I can’t wait to read your Sunny Summer Poem!
