‘Winning the Caterpillar Poetry Prize is all shades of wonderful!’
Read Coral Rumble’s €1,000 winning poem, ‘Mustafa’s Jumper’
The Caterpillar Poetry Prize, run by the junior art and literature magazine The Caterpillar and awarded annually to a single unpublished poem written by an adult for children, was judged this year by the British poet Chrissie Gittins.
“It was a constant pleasure and surprise to discover the range of subject matter and approaches in the submissions to the prize,” said Gittins. “The difficulty was in choosing between vastly different types of poem of comparable quality.”
