A POETRY competition has been launched for both children and teens amid the covid-19 pandemic.

In partnership with Better Communities Bradford, poet Sheena Hussain is encouraging budding writers to respond to the theme of "blessings".

"Although we are in lockdown mode, there are so many ways to have converstaions with your families, friends, neighbours and deeply think about what "blessings" means to each one of you," the advertisement reads.

There are different categories including: 5-7, 8-10, 11-13 and 14-16.

There is a £50 prize for each category.
