Description: Young Poets Network is thrilled to be partnering with Agincourt 600 in a competition to get poets aged 5-18 grappling with the history of a bloody and brutal battle. The Battle of Agincourt is one of the most famous and controversial battles in European history, forever associated with the clash of two nations, the might of medieval kings, and the fierce figure of the longbowman. To commemorate its 600th anniversary, the Agincourt 600 Poetry Competition asks young poets to delve into Agincourt’s history and legacy, and create a poem that explores this battle afresh.
