The Tartan Treasures Poetry Competition organised by Angus Council hopes to discover first-class modern day poets inspired by Scotland.

The competition is part of this year’s Tartan Day Scotland Festival, which takes place in Angus from April 5 to 13; to celebrate Homecoming Scotland it is asking poets of all ages to write a poem summing up what Scotland means to them.

Angus Provost Helen Oswald, one of the three judges, said: “Poetry can be such an effective medium for expressing thoughts and feelings. Last year, the Tartan Treasures short story competition resulted in a fantastic selection of excellent tales from highly-talented local writers from school age upwards. This year, with entries open to poets from across the globe, we’re hoping for even more entries and I strongly suspect poems will be submitted that will make us smile, laugh, think and even cry.”

The Tartan Treasures Poetry Competition is open to non-professional poets of all ages. The closing date for entries is February 21. For more information, and to download an entry form, visit www.tartandayscotland.com/treasures or pick up a Tartan Treasures competition leaflet at libraries, museums, leisure centres and ACCESS offices across Angus.
