Enter now! Young People Today Poetry Contest
6 mars, 2015 | Blog, Nouvelles, Notre Voix

Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO once said « every poem is unique but each reflects the universal in human experience, the aspiration for creativity that crosses all boundaries and boarders, of time as well as space, in the constant affirmation of humanity as a single family. »

March 21, 2015 is UNESCO World Poetry Day and we want YOU to take part.

We will be hosting a #YoungPeopleDeserve Poetry Contest. The criteria is simple: write a poem in any style that tells us what YOU think young people deserve. This could be a ballad, limerick, haiku, blank verse, sonnet or another style of your choice. Send your poem to esacommitment@unesco.org  by midnight on March 19 with the subject line: World Poetry Day and your name. The winning entry will be featured on our blog on World Poetry Day.

By joining us in celebrating World Poetry Day you are helping us recognise the unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind.

We look forward to reading all of your entries! Good luck!
