For National Poetry Day 2018, we are celebrating what GirlguidingNWE means to our members, by inviting them to share their exciting Girlguiding journey through artful poetry.
All our members are invited to join in, whether it's our adult members or girls, but we will be choosing one lucky winner from each section and gifting them with a fabulous copy of best-selling book 'Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2'- a book filled with inspirational and heroic women (reminding us of all our members!).
And that's not all, the chosen poems will feature on our website, social media, and an upcoming campaign. Impressive right?
So get your poet hats on! To enter, you need to write a poem sharing what it means to be in GirlguidingNWE and how far you've come. We aim to have one winner from each section so it would be great if you could tailor it to your current section.
You could even encourage your unit members to write their own poems by running a poetry writing session in one of your unit meetings! Particularly for Brownies and Rainbows who may need more support in writing/submitting their poems.
All poems must have a title and must not exceed 50 lines.
The closing date for submissions is 18/10/2018. Please, email your poems to firstname.lastname@example.org, or alternatively post them to Girlguiding NWE Region Headquarters, Guiding Road, Preston PR2 5PD.
