Caterpillar Poetry Competition

The Caterpillar is delighted to announce its inaugural poetry prize – for a single poem written by an adult for children (aged 7–11).

What we are looking for is a stand-out poem to which we can award a prize of €1,000 to celebrate the richness of children’s writing.

The Prize is open to everyone. The work must be original and previously unpublished. The entry fee is €12 per poem and you can enter as many poems as you like.


Or simply send your poem(s) along with a cheque or postal order made payable to The Moth Magazine Ltd. and an entry form (downloadable HERE) or a cover letter with your name and contact details and the title of poem(s) attached to: The Caterpillar, Drummullen, Cavan, Co. Cavan, Ireland.

The competition will be judged anonymously by the publishers of The Caterpillar and The Moth, Rebecca O’Connor and Will Govan.

Please make sure you READ THE RULES before entering the competition.


The winning poem will feature in the summer 2015 issue of The Caterpillar. Commended poems may also be published in the same issue.

The best of luck!
