celbrating-poetryThanks to everyone who found themselves inspired by June and July’s anything goes ‘Freestyle’ theme. You can read those poems here.

The theme for August is: ‘Holidays’.
Been on holiday this year? Was there a holiday in the past that was particularly memorable? What does Bournemouth offer holiday makers? What holidays / days out did you have as a child? Where would you like to go if you could go anywhere. Your poems can be as imaginative as you like, but your starting point must be some link to ‘holidays’.

You can send in your poems (maximum of two poems per poet please). As always, they can be in any style – long , short, funny, serious, sad, humorous.

Remember, poets are of all ages – children and adults are welcome to send in their poems. Have you been keeping a poem in a box somewhere all these years – maybe now is the time to share it?

Please send poems directly to me at  jamesmanlow@hotmail.com  and I’ll arrange for them to be posted up to the online Celebrating Poetry link on the Council website.
