National Write a Poem in English

Oide is inviting students to enter our 'National Write a Poem in English' competition. There are two categories: Junior Cycle and Senior Cycle. We hope that this popular competition will encourage young writers to compose poetry and assist teachers in supporting the writing of poetry.

The winning poets in each category will be notified and receive a commemorative plaque. Their poem will be published in the National Poetry Award booklet. Prizes will be presented as part of the Wellread National Award ceremony, organised by Oide, in association with Laois Education Centre. This ceremony will take place in the Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise on Thursday, 11th April 2024.

The closing date for entries is Friday, 15th December 2023. Full details can be found here.
