Poet in Residence Returns!

Brenda Read-Brown our Poet in Residence returned this week to work with and inspire students across the school.

Brenda is an experienced performance poet from Gloucestershire where she is currently the Poet Laureate; she is also a trustee of Ledbury Poetry Festival and Coordinator of the Poetry on Loan project in the West Midlands and has performed her poems all over the UK and abroad.

Brenda’s poetry is entertaining, thought provoking and uplifting .She will be visiting the school throughout 2018 to perform her poetry and run workshops with our students to help inspire their creativity and release their inner poets.  This year students will be working to produce group poems ready to perform at the Poetry Festival in July. Last year students performed at the opening event for the festival to much acclaim and they all really enjoyed the experience.

For more information on Brenda you can visit her website at www.brendareadbrown.co.uk. Brenda will be returning over the next few months to help prepare the students for their final performances and to hold poetry clinics in the school library.
