A Poetry NI collection for National Poetry Day

For National Poetry Day UK, we put out a 24-hour writing challenge: to write a poem on the theme of 'change'. Poets had precisely 24 hours to respond to the challenge, write a new poem, and send it in to us.
We're delighted with the results and that so many decided to take up the task. Within, you'll find poems from Orla Fay. Trudie Gorman, David Braziel, Glen Wilson, Siobhan Atkins, Peter Adair, Jane Robinson, Jessamine O’Connor, Geraldine O’Kane, K.S. Moore, Trish Bennett, Colin Dardis, Andrew Roycroft and Rosie Burrows.
Special thanks also to the Year 10 pupils from the Archer Academy in East Finchley, North London, who held a special writing special in school, in answer to our challenge. Well done all of them!
Happy reading, and happy National Poetry Day.
