Theme: Echoes of Childhood

And even though I am grown, my childhood sits at my heels… 

Her Heart Poetry is calling for original works of poetry that present a unique and evocative interpretation of the theme: Echoes of Childhood.

Successful works will be those that subvert expected narratives and present a unique point of view. We ask poets to dig deep in order to surprise and delight. Works may be tragic, or comic, they may be full of whimsy or full of darkness. It is entirely up to you!

Submission Period: 15 January, 2018 – 20 March, 2018.
Showing Online and on Instagram: 5 April, 2018 – 20 June, 2018.


Up to 50 works will be selected in the Highly Commended category and will be published to herheartpoetry.com, the relevant quarterly digital anthology, and the Her Heart Poetry Community pages on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Please note that Highly Commended works will also be printed in HARD COPY and digital format in our end of year poetry book, THE POETS CANVAS 2018.


Submissions are open until March 20th, 2018 and successful entries will begin showing on Instagram and Her Heart Poetry from 5 April, 2018.

Please see the Submission Guidelines for full details.
