The New Zealand Poetry Society's annual International Verse and Haiku Competition, with Open and Junior sections, will close shortly. We are grateful to those schools that have sent entries in already. One of the goals of the competition is to encourage a love of poetry in young people, and we appreciate your help in reaching this goal.

The Open Junior and Haiku Junior sections are open to students who are 17
years of age or under on 30th May 2007. Our website has full competition details, including School Group Entry Instructions, and the entry forms for downloading.

There are cash prizes, and selected entries will appear in the New Zealand Poetry Society's annual anthology later in the year. This year's judges are:

James Norcliffe (Christchurch) - Open Verse
Ernest Berry (Picton) – Junior Verse
