Poetry Competition

We want to see your best creative efforts!

Home > Poetry Competition

Poetry is a wonderful way to express yourself – you can tell a story, convey a feeling, make sense of life, or simply spend a quiet hour or two doing something relaxing, yet mentally stimulating.

We were delighted by the response to our recent Lockdown Photography Competition, the results of which you can see here. Seeing how popular that was, we decided we’d like to continue harnessing the creative talents of Rest Less members!

This time, we’d like you to get your pens, pencils, typewriters, laptops – or whatever it is you write with – out.

Rest Less Members' Poetry Competition

Submit your poems to us by midnight, Sunday 12th July

Express yourself – there are no rules on subject matter or style. Be inspired by whatever interests you, and feel free to be as creative as you like.

We’ll publish the best poems on our website and feature them in our weekly newsletter, which is seen by over 200k Rest Less members!

How to enter

Please email your poems to [email protected] with your name, location and a photograph of you (the photo is optional, but it would be nice to include alongside your poem if it is published).

By submitting your entry, you confirm that you are happy for us to publish your name, poem and photograph (if you send us one) on our website and social media.

Get writing, we can't wait to read your poems!
