Writing through UK lockdown: DGS Poet Laureates

It might be lockdown here in the UK, but the writing goes on, and we need it, more than ever!

I’m delighted today to share with you the new commissioned poems from our Didcot Girls’ School Poet Laureates, who have been reflecting on the theme of ‘contact.’ Writing these poems has given Myfanwy and Larika a unique opportunity to express some of the isolation and disconnect that so many young people are experiencing, around the UK, right now.

Please read these poems and pass them on!
