The team at Essex Life are offering the children of Essex a chance to have their poem published in a spring edition of the magazine! 

The county's youngsters can send us a poem entitled 'Why I Love my Mum.' A selection of entries will then be chosen to appear in our Mother's Day edition of Essex Life Magazine. 

Each entry must contain the poet's first name, age and school and should be sent as a Word document or PDF. 

Entries should be sent to no later than Friday 19 January 2024. 

Good luck!
