It’s a bit of a sigh of relief, to know that schools are OPEN after such a long, difficult period for so many families. I can’t wait to get back into some classrooms at Didcot Girls’ School really soon, to get all of year 9 writing poetry. It’s always a highlight of my Patron of Writing role, to be able to actively change the majority of a year group’s minds, about poetry and writing, for the better.
I’ll check back into the blog, with more on this, soon.
In the meantime, please don’t forget, DGS & SBS (Saint Birinus School) students, that we are seeking two new Poet Laureates for both schools. They get to write commissioned poems for the school, during the year ahead. They also get 1-to-1 mentoring and guidance from me, throughout the process, and to have their poems published online. Here’s a quick reminder of what you have to do, to bag this golden opportunity …
Get those poems sent in pronto! I look forward to working with you soon!
Please spread the word – thank you 🙂 .
