The British Romantic Writing and Environmental Catastrophe project collaborated with The Poetry Society’s Young Poets Network to produce ‘I am the Universe: Writing Climate Change’. The challenge and competition used Romantic texts and images alongside contemporary artworks to inspire young poets to think and write about the world’s changing landscapes.
The competition received a fantastic 239 entries. The winning poems, judged by Helen Mort, have now been announced, and can be read and enjoyed on the Young Poets Network website.
We have also published the wonderful 1st-prize-winning poem, ‘Inverie’ by Abigail Meyer, on our Public Engagement page.
