Founded in 2006, on the centenary of former poet laureate Sir John Betjeman’s birth, the Betjeman Poetry Prize is a charity in the education sector working with partners across the British Isles to promote literacy, foster creativity and provide a platform for new voices from the next generation.
The writing competition invites entries from 10 -13 year olds across the British Isles, who must write on the theme of ‘place’. Connection to place is central to John Betjeman’s work and our theme aims to encourage young people to look closely at their environment and to question where they come from and who they are.
Continuing a strong and sustaining partnership with the Betjeman Poetry Prize, HS1, the owners of St. Pancras International has agreed to donate £5000 as a new prize to the school (or local library of a home schooled child) of the winning young poet of the 2018 Betjeman Poetry Prize!
Previously, winning schools/libraries received £500. With current schooling budgets stretched to the max, we hope that the increased donation this year makes a positive impact on the winning poet's school or library.
All entrants must submit their poems here by Tuesday 31st July. Good luck!

The station's booksellers Hatchards are soon to be hosting a fantastic Q&A event with Nick Setchfield, debut author of The War in the Dark, a dark fantasy thriller.
Open to the public, the Q&A will be held on Tuesday 24th July from 6pm by the Sir John Betjeman Statue, under the station's iconic train shed roof.
Set in 1963, the novel imagines a magical, supernatural war playing out on the edges of reality in unison with the Cold War. It follows British Intelligence agent Christopher Winter as he races to discover an occult secret written in the language of fire that will offer supremacy to whatever nation possesses it. Racing against the Russians he soon finds himself entangled in tense allegiance with a lethal and mysterious woman named Karina Lazarova.
