Welcome to the World Wetlands Day Poetry Prize for Tasmanian students!

australian pelican copyIf you’re reading this, hopefully that means you’re interested in wetlands and/or slime and/or poetry and/or pelicans and/or winning things. That’s great – so are we!

The World Wetlands Day Poetry Prize for Tasmanian Students is about all of those things, but mostly, it’s about giving you, the students of Tasmania, the chance to write about the sometimes stinky, frequently squelchy, and often spectacular world of wetlands.

Entries are now open to Tasmanian students from grades 3 to 12 – we’ll be accepting your haikus, free verse, and who knows, maybe some limericks until the 25th November 2016.

We’ll be posting a veritable smorgasbord of fantastic wetland facts to spark your imaginations over the next few months – follow us by clicking on the link in the right hand column to be kept updated.

New posts will appear here on the home page, and if you keep scrolling down, you can read some of the poems that won the open poetry prize earlier this year, and as time goes by, more and more wetland tidbits.

Happy scribing!

The World Wetlands Day Poetry Prize Committee
