Poetry Competition at Gorgie City Farm

Gorgie City Farm will be celebrating National Poetry Day (Thursday 8 October) with a poetry competition for writers of all ages! The closing date is Friday 2 October. If you're in Edinburgh, this is a great excuse to visit the farm and write a poem! The poem needs to be in honour of the poet's favourite animal at Gorgie City Farm. You can send your poems by post to: Gorgie City Farm, 51 Gorgie Road, Edinburgh, EH11 2LA or email them to: sponsor@gorgiecityfarm.org.uk. Entry to the competition is free! There will be prizes including: free sponsorship of the poet's favourite animal for a year; book tokens and a farm goodie bag!

I'm delighted to have been asked to judge this competition! You can find a poster for the competition here.

Please note: Writing poetry about the farm rabbits does not necessarily guarantee a prize!

Again I am sorry I don't live in Edinburgh - you make it all sound so alive and vibrant a city Juliet.

The link did not get me to the poster - it got me to the google docs page.

Were that I were properly wired for poetry production!
