Charles Causley Poetry Competition 2020

Please see the below email regarding the competition. This might be a strong learning activity for children to complete while they are 'Remote Learning'.  Should you require any further details beyond the email below and the website, please do not hesitate to contact me (click the picture below which will take you directly to the website).

The competition is open to all children and young people aged 5 – 18 and our website gives full details of the different categories and how to enter.  Please visit us at to find out more.  Entry is FREE and prizes will include vouchers, books, and other writing-related treats!  Plus, winners will be invited to a prize-giving event hosted by our Patron, Patrick Gale, in October 2020 at the North Cornwall Book Festival.

The theme of this year’s competition is Environment

With the prospect of schools closing early for Easter as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we hope that our competition will be suitable for inclusion in home-working packages.  Extra time at home may be a great opportunity for children to think about the environment and get down to some wonderful creative writing!


With best wishes from The Charles Causley Trust.
