Farmers Weekly is on the hunt for poetry.

Readers often share their written work with us – whether it is wry and lighthearted or serious and hard-hitting, so we know there are many skilled amateur poets in the countryside.

Now we are looking for a poem that sums up 2015.

It can be any length and style, but we want one that sums up what it is felt like to have been a farmer or a member of a farming family over the past 12 months.

The form, style and sentiment is entirely up to you (it might be funny, sad or a mixture of both) but we are hoping to read poems that touch on one or more of the highlights and low points of 2015 and that express the joys – and difficulties – of contemporary rural life.

If we receive one that we think perfectly encapsulates the year, we’ll publish it in Farmers Weekly.

Good luck.
