Poetry was an extremely important part of the cultural life of the ancient Greeks and Romans. They used poetry to remember their history, share their myths, and debate what they believed in.

The Teece Museum invites young writers to take part in our biennial poetry competition. We are looking for creative and interesting poems written in response to our current exhibition Fantastic Feasts, or in response to an object from the Logie Collection.

Poems will be accepted by authors in two age groups: age 11-14, and age 15-18 years. There will be prizes for the best entries in each age group, and the winning poems will be published on the Teece Museum website.

Guest judges for 2019 are poet Dr Lynley Edmeades, University of Otago Department of English, Professor Paul Millar, University of Canterbury Department of English, and Dr Patrick O’Sullivan, University of Canterbury Department of Classics.

How to enter: Entries open 12 August and close 27 September 2019. Winners will be announced 14 October 2019.

Find entry forms and more information on the Teece Museum website and Facebook page.
