Deadline has been extended to Tuesday 21st July 2020
This multilingual poetry competition celebrates cultural diversity and the many languages currently spoken in schools across the UK.
Mother Tongue entries will be in two parts: The first part is the poem. This can be an original, creative piece, or a poem or song that is ‘remembered’ – i.e. something in your first language that you recall, or that has been told to you by a relative. This can be in any language but English. The second part should be a short explanation of the inspiration behind the piece, where it comes from, or why it is important to the person submitting it (no more than half a page). This part must be written in English and is the part your entry will be judged on.
Other Tongue entries must be an original poem written in a language that is not the first language spoken by the person writing it. Entries are welcomed in French, Spanish, German or Italian.
Madame Chadier is happy to receive and process any work pupils would like to send in. Please e mail all poetry entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
