British Romantic Writing and Environmental Catastrophe, an AHRC-funded project at the University of Leeds, has teamed up with the Poetry Society’s Young Poets Network and poet Helen Mort to create “I am the Universe: Writing Climate Change: a challenge and competition for poets under 25.”
We invite young writers to respond to Romantic texts alongside Romantic and contemporary images, and use this inspiration to think and write about the world’s increasingly shifting landscapes.
The competition is now live! See the challenge and read about how to enter here: https://ypn.poetrysociety.org.uk/workshop/i-am-the-universe-writing-climate-change/
The website offers also advice on poetry writing, possibly of interest to those who’d rather write a creative piece instead of an essay. -E.S.
