Calling all Creatives - Poetry Competition

Creative Competition Celebrates East Anglian Museums

As part of the projects with local museums, the Atelier East Young Curators' Forum are putting together a booklet of creative art and writing to celebrate museums! We've widened the scope of our competition, and we're now looking poetry, prose, visual art inspired by museums throughout the East of England. 

I'll be helping to put the booklet together, as well as judging the entries, and I'm really looking forward to receiving submissions from all you creative people out there!

We need your short stories, poems and drawings inspired by your local museum. 

The competition is free to enter, and it's a great opportunity to see your work in print. Plus, there are so many amazing objects to spark your imagination! 

You could write a poem about the mummified rat in the Whittlesey museum, tell the story about the 'Spong Man' at the Norwich Castle Museum, or paint a picture of old-fashioned computers on display at the Framlingham Museum in Suffolk!

All the winning entries will be published in a special limited edition booklet, and the competition is open to artists and writers of all ages. So, whether you're a budding Piccaso, or an amateur JK Rowling, we'd love to hear from you!

This project has been made possible with the support of Cambridgeshire-based arts organisation Atelier East and funding from the charity, Young Lives.

If you'd like to enter, please send your submission to with your name, contact telephone number, and the name of the museum and artefact that inspired you. 

Alternatively, you can pick up an entry form from the Wisbech and Fenland Museum, Museum Square, Wisbech PE13 1ES.

The closing date for submissions is Saturday 31st August 2013.

Good luck!
