Local poets are being called upon to wax lyrical about life in North Lincolnshire for a new poetry competition celebrating life in this corner of the county.

With a theme of ‘Sense of Place’, poets are free to write about any aspect of their life in the area, whether that’s a favourite landmark or a fellow resident that has made an impact in the community.

Winning entrants will see their poem published in a special anthology. Prizes will also be awarded to winning entries in three separate age categories: entrants aged five to 11, 12 to 18 and 18 and over.

First prize in each category will receive a £50 Amazon gift voucher, with those in second and third each receiving a £10 one.

To enter, email your poem along with your name, age and address to wordscount@northlincs.gov.uk or post it to Words Count, Learning Development Centre, Enderby Road, Scunthorpe, DN17 2JL, before Friday 23 March 2018.
