‘War and Peace in Today’s World’

This century has seen yet another turbulent roller-coaster of troubled times, in which the world we live in continues to be faced with uncertainties and conflict through wars, unrest and violent agendas.

We chose ‘War and Peace in Today’s World‘ as our theme for 2016’s youth poetry competition, opening up a whirlpool of thought for entrants to express their views, fears, hopes and solutions through written word.

This theme creates a lot of political and social debate regarding countries all over the world who are at war over issues such as oil, land, religion, resources and money. But there is also conflict on other levels too.

For example within families and relationships; gangs and communities and being at war with ourselves at times too.

Young people from around the UK sent in their heart warming experiences of peace and heart wrenching experiences of war.  These entries are now published in the book ‘War and Peace in Today’s World‘ available to purchase from Amazon for just £8.96 + pp.

Please buy the book to support young authors and to get a first hand read of how they truly feel.
