Story Rhyme Competition!

Write us a rhyming poem – and get published in Storytime!

We are very excited to announce a new Storytime competition! We would love our readers to write us a rhyming poem about their favourite place in the world!

To get you started we’ve put together a Story Rhyme! Activity Pack – which is full of fun activities that will help you create a cool poem for the competition. You can download it here.

When you have completed the activities in this pack, write down your poem on the entry form at the back and send it to us. We can’t wait to read them all!

The winner will have their poem published in Storytime, a fantastic book bundle, a printed winners’ certificate, and we will set up a free year’s subscription for the winner’s school to our Storytime Hub, which has over 850 stories in digital and audio format to read, share and enjoy.

Good luck everybody!


The Rules

To enter, you can photocopy or cut out the form from your latest issue of Storytime, or download it from this link here. Then write your awesome poem on it and fill in your details so that we can get in touch with you if you win.
