Your poems needed

Poems on the theme of ‘Connect’ needed

We’re launching a search for poems inspired by one of the Five Ways to Wellbeing: Connect.

As the world starts to reopen, we felt that it’s the perfect time to celebrate and think about how we connect with each other, with nature and with ourselves.

Maybe you’ll be inspired by new connections you’ve made in the past year?  Or explore how you feel about reconnecting with those you know well?  Perhaps it’s a chance to reflect on connections that are lost and the impact they had on you, or anticipation of connections yet to happen?  

Whatever your inspiration, we look forward to reading your entries.  

We’ll select ten poems to appear in a printed collection for Christmas 2021.

Poems must be no longer than 40 lines, and you must currently live in Scotland

To submit please visit:

Deadline for entries: Thursday 7 October 2021

Collection printed: November 2021
