Before the fire of money
burned my happiness.
from ‘The Autograph Book’ by Conor, Year 6 

From the heart-melting to hilarious, Red Room Poetry Object has surfaced fossils, home movies, Krishna and even a rice cooker!! This year the competition received over 2550 entries with lines like,  Minotaurs are becoming extinct as usual’; ‘Your plaid under-clothes flared out at the edges like a flower in bloom’; ‘ ‘When you fall over, I want to fix you’.

Winning and highly commended poems are broadcast on ABC RN and exhibited at Liverpool Library until the end of February 2015.
