The Poet X Competition

Closing date: 11th May 2018

To celebrate The Poet X, the newest addition to the Electric Monkey bookshelf, we’re giving you the chance to win a special bundle prize inspired by the stunning novel-in-verse.

Xiomara has always kept her words to herself. When it comes to standing her ground in her Harlem neighbourhood, she lets her fists and her fierceness do the talking.

But X has secrets – her feelings for a boy in her bio class, and the notebook full of poems that she keeps under her bed. And a slam poetry club that will pull those secrets into the spotlight.

Because in spite of a world that might not want to hear her, Xiomara refuses to stay silent.

Brave, bold and beautifully written, The Poet X is an incredible, debut YA novel-in-verse from slam poet Elizabeth Acevedo about finding your voice and standing up for what you believe in, no matter how hard it is to say.

Elizabeth is a National Slam Champion, Beltway Grand Slam Champion, and the 2016 Women of the World Poetry Slam representative for Washington, D.C, where she lives and works.

For your chance to win a copy of Elizabeth Acevedo’s YA novel-in-verse, The Poet X, a three book notebook bundle, a pack of pens and pencils and a one year subscription to Poetry Magazine (11 issues) enter our competition by 11 May 2018.
