Young Poet Laureate

Each year young people aged 11-17 are invited to apply to be our next Young Poet Laureate for the city.
Our Young Poet Laureates play a fantastic role in promoting poetry to other young people. In past years, they have met the Lord Mayor, performed on stage at the Frankfurt Christmas Market, worked with schools and youth groups, appeared on radio and television, visited a top football team and taken the stage at Gigglefest.

Young Poets Laureate Birmingham 2005 to 2013

About the Young Poet Laureate Birmingham

Birmingham is lucky to have both a Poet Laureate and a Young Poet Laureate. We have had a Young Poet Laureate for the city since 2005.
