Earlier this month I went to a poetry competition. I was entered into the individual category to perform by myself. At the heats I successfully made it through to the finals. I only had a week to prepare for the finals so me and my mum pretended we were on stage and practiced performing the poems. I practised more in school with Miss Caton so I knew the poem really well! On the night of the final I was a bit late because of traffic getting into the Civic Hall. Miss Caton and Mrs Mylam were there to support me and a lot of my family came. It was a bit scary being on the stage because it was lots bigger than the school stage and there were so many people! I didn't win but it was a good experience.
