With the onset of spring, and as a tribute to our newest restoration project here at Hestercombe, we’re calling for young writers to enter our poetry competition on the theme of ‘spring’.
With the unveiling of Sibyl’s Temple, a recreation of a magnificent 18th century building in Hestercombe’s Georgian Landscape garden, winners of the competition will get the chance to read their poem at the official ceremony on Wednesday, 17th April.
They will also be invited to take part in a writing masterclass with one of the competition’s judges, international bestselling author Vicky Holmes (creator of Warrior Cats, Rainbow Magic, Animal Ark, Heartland and Chestnut Hill), and there will be prizes of £25 in book tokens to spend on their favourite reads.
Alongside Vicky, there will be a number of special guest judges, including Hestercombe’s Chief Executive Philip White MBE.
The age categories for the competition are split into three: under-12s, 12-15 and 16-21
The competition will close at 5pm on 1st April 2019.
