'Poetry in Bloom' Competition, with Powerscourt Gardens.
The Gardens of Powerscourt Estate are now beautifully in bloom and are the perfect place to visit to unwind and enjoy nature. And if you're inspired by your visit, you can enter the 'Poetry in Bloom' competition with a chance to win some fantastic prizes!
'Poetry in Bloom' is a novel initiative to encourage people to connect with and be inspired by nature and to create inspirational stories. Everyone aged 7 years and up, is invited to create a poem or write lyrics, inspired by nature they’ve observed at Powerscourt Gardens and Waterfall, throughout the Summer.
Submissions will be accepted online until 30th September and will automatically be entered into an open prize draw to win a variety of amazing prizes. Renowned Hollywood actor Patrick Bergin will be supporting the “Poetry in Bloom” initiative at Powerscourt this year and will be selecting a number of submissions to be made into a short poetry-film.
