Res Life's Poetry Competition

Res Life's Poetry Competition

Show us your creativity and win £20 of Amazon vouchers!

Residence Life wants you to become creative!  Poetry is so important because it helps us understand and appreciate the world around us.

The style of writing poetry differs from person to person and the great thing is, no matter how a poem is written, it still holds great emotion.

Entries can be funny, inspirational or soul searching, we just want you to spend a bit of time being creative and to escape from the real world, for a while at least!

Click here to enter the competition and let us know some contact details and then submit your entry in the field provided.
