“Thank you for letting me be part of the Young Writers group again this year! It has been a great experience and these two years have definitely boosted both my confidence and my skills. I never thought I’d want to be a poet as well as a novelist, but here I am.”Thomas King, Year 10 student
Here’s what the students thought about their poetry workshop (autumn 2020)…
& some feedback from the teachers in the room…
I offer poetry workshops and mentoring in secondary schools (for ages 11-18). I have been working as Patron of Writing at Didcot Girls’ School for 3+ years and at St Birinus School for 1+ year.
I am one of the Poetry Society’s registered Poets in Schools. Find out more about the benefits to students of booking a Poet in your school, and how to book, via the Poetry Society, here.
You can check out my posts about working in schools, which are available to view now on my blog.
Please read this amazing poetry anthology, by the young poets I’ve been mentoring in 2020.
