STORYSTOCK | Poetry Competition

To celebrate the return of the family festival of stories at Battersea Power Station and 250 years of the circus, Storystock have launched an illustrated poetry competition for primary school children.

Judged by previous Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell, the winner of the prize will have their poem published in the spring issue of angels & urchins magazine and receive a bumper selection of books from Macmillian Publishers.

Marc Chagall’s painting: The Circus Horse (1964) will be the starting point of the poems and we would like children to take whatever inspiration they like from the painting to create an illustrated poem.

The two age categories are: ages 4-8 and ages 9-11. There will be one winner from each category. The Winner will be announced on 1st December 2018.
