Get Blackpool Reading has been encouraging young people in the town to write their own BLACKPOOL acrostic poem to receive books in return (COMPETITION NOW CLOSED).

An acrostic is a poem where the first letter of each line spells out a word. For this challenge we wanted this to be ‘BLACKPOOL’!

Check out some the brilliant entries we received below and why not give it a go yourself! You can find advice and videos on how to write acrostic poems on BBC Bitesize and with poet Matt Windle.
