Poets Express announces the short list for Kids Express poetry competition.

PRLog - Jun. 20, 2009 - BANTRY, Ireland -- Poets Express is pleased to announce the short listed entries for Kids Express, a poetry competition for school aged children 8-12 and 13-17.

Within three days of announcing Kids Express the competition was thrown open to international entries as requests from parents and kids poured in from across Ireland and around the world. Entries were received from Ireland, the UK, and India. The outstanding selection of poetry impressed the judges tremendously, and narrowing the list down was difficult.
