Homerton College, Cambridge
THE POETRY BY HEART 2015 FINALISTS
We are delighted to announce that the 2016 Poetry By Heart finals weekend will be held again at Homerton College, Cambridge. The winners of every county contest – and their teachers/school librarians – are guaranteed an expenses paid place at the finals.
First, there are regional contests to pick regional champions. The 7 regional champions automatically secure a place in the grand final, and there is one extra ‘wild card’ place for the best runner-up.
There will also be extra activities to enjoy, including a special welcome dinner in the Great Hall with poetry readings by some of our poet judges, walking tours of Cambridge and creative workshops.
