Could you write a poem about war? It can be fact, fiction, about family members or another area of war.
I would like to create a Booklet of War Poetry from Bampton and Outlying Districts, to help commemorate the Great War and 100 years from 1914.

All Bamptonians know that the military have played an important part in this town; the names of local men who died in the two World Wars are emblazoned on the War Memorial.
This year help us to remember them by creating a local book of poems which I intend to get published. If you would like to take part please send me your poem, up to 40 lines in length, by the end of August, with your name and address. Should I receive a lot of poems these will go forward to a local judging competition – more of this later. The chosen poems will be published before the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.
You could be a part of this. Use your imagination to help Bampton celebrate the lives of those who were lost to this town in 1914-18 and 1939-45.
