Rap Like Robbie Poetry Competition

1 - 30 September 2020

Write a poem inspired by the work of Robert Burns and be in with a chance to score $500, generously sponsored by the Dunedin-Edinburgh Sister City Society. 

Our theme this year is ‘freedom’ which is inspired by Burns’ poem Here’s a Health to them that’s Awa. You can use this theme or write about whatever you like, in English or you can have a go at writing in Scots. It can be any style – just read a bit of Burns’ work and see where it takes you.

To enter you must be aged between 12 and 17 years old and a resident of Otago.

Pick up an entry form from your local Dunedin Public Library or enter online at www.dunedinlibraries.govt.nz/whats-on/competitions  

Submit your poem with your entry form by Monday 30th November 2020.

Closing date 30th November 2020
