Your Living History Poem

Celebrate National Poetry Day by writing a poem about a particular room or any object in Andover Museum’s collection. You must first visit us to get your inspiration! Open to all ages! You could write a Ballad, sonnet, free verse, limerick, the form is up to you. All we ask is that it’s printed, in at least 14pt and fits on one side of A4 paper. Decorate the page if you want to. If you’d prefer to draw, then draw a cartoon (maximum four frames) or combine it with a poem. The same rules apply.
