Looking Forward

We are inviting you to get creative and write a poem on the theme of Looking Forward.
It’s easy to dwell on our current situation but what are you looking forward to when this is all over?
Maybe it’s a holiday? Perhaps you’re looking forward to visiting family you haven’t been able to see? Or are you planning to approach life differently after this experience?
We would love to see your poems on what you’re looking forward to.

Looking for inspiration? Read the selected poems that have been published so far.

If you have a budding young poet in your household we would love to share an image of their handwritten poem and perhaps they’d even like to illustrate it!
Maybe you have a photo of your handwritten poem you would like to email to us.
This isn’t a competition, just a creative outlet for you to connect and share during this unusual time. Please send your poems to
Don't forget to include your name and age.
We will share a selection of the poems on our social media and the Virtual Library.
