Rum babas at the ready everyone. The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens on 20 Aug, and the Great British Bard Off pop-up poetry shop will soon be opening for business once more. We've got deliciousness, rhythm and some surprises in store... and to take part in the fun, send your poems to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Anything inspired by baking or by the marvellous TV series itself is welcome. And, at the end of the series, we'll be crowning our very own Star Baker, a high honour awarded to the person whose poem we like the best (and we'll also be awarding prizes for the best Showstopper, Signature Bake and Technical Challenge). There is no prize but glory, and the ability to claim yourself as an expert in both baking and poetry. Last year's winner was Lavinia Singer.
As a reminder, we are in no way affiliated with the BBC, Love Productions or the Great British Bake Off. We are just fans of the show, of baking and of poetry. Ready? GET BAKING!
