The Poetry Van
We were so inspired to welcome five young poets and the Poetry Takeaway Van to Bullers Wood in the beautiful autumnal sunshine. Students visited the van and discussed their ideas (the ingredients) with the poets (the chefs) and had the wonderful privilege of having a personalised poem created for them to take-away. The experience was a mutual celebration of imagination and creativity: both students and poets enjoyed the lively dialogue and unique works that were created. It was so special for all of us to meet real working poets and to see their craft in action. We hope that this is the beginning of a rich and exciting year of poetry and creativity in our Library and English enrichment programme.
