Entries must be accompanied by the name, age, address and phone/email of the entrant.

All entries must be in English. Email to or hand in at any branch of Libraries Tararua. If emailed, poem/s can be in the body of the email or attached as a Microsoft Word or Publisher document. Handwritten entries will be accepted, however, they must be legibly printed.

Maximum of two entries per person ; at least one poem will be published online, selected by us.

All poems are to be an original creation of the entrant, and previously unpublished.
