Poet Paula Green, whose poetry collection The Baker's Thumbprint we are publishing in May, is running a poetry competition for children. The five winning poems will be included in a new anthology of New Zealand poetry for children that she's editing, which will be published by Random House in 2014. Check out the details here on her new poetry blog for children: http://nzpoetrybox.wordpress.com/2013/02/14/a-fabulous-poetry-competition-for-children/.
Vivienne Plumb, whose most recent poetry collection was The Cheese and Onion Sandwich and other New Zealand Icons: Prose Poems, is the judge of the Ben Cauchi Poetry Competition for Wellington's City Gallery.
She has selected her top 10 out of the 68 entries and now you have a chance to vote for your favourite. The winner of the voting will win the People's Choice Award.
