Share your verses with us and speak back to history!

Thank you for your interest in the 2021 History Festival Poetry Takeover Challenge! We’re eager to see how you think and feel about transformation and what it means to you.

Starting Saturday 1 May, this page will include a form where you can upload your poem and photo of the object that inspired you. When you have completed the form, we will check your entry. If it meets the Poetry Takeover guidelines, we will publish your poem on the Poetry Takeover website.

If you have any questions or problems, please ask your teacher, parent or carer to contact us.
