At Costa you’ll find our Barista’s are skilled
At catering your coffee whether piping or chilled
For this Litfest, we sat with the noble intention,
To spark young minds into literary invention.
And inspired by our coffee, a thought did unfold,
Of a content we’ve entitled ‘Hot vs. Cold’.
With this theme as a subject we thought at this time,
To ask for your entries in story or rhyme.
To help your words flow, as an incentive for you.
There’s the trip of a lifetime and it’s one made for two.
With this prize, you’ll devise what journey you’ll take,
Set your standards to stunning, there’s much here at stake.
Make us laugh, make us cry, be quite wistful or bold,
Be dramatic or solemn with ‘Hot vs. Cold’.
So come on you poets, you authors and scribes,
Read the terms and conditions this small print describes.
