Our poetry writing workshops encourage pupils to play with words and rhythms while working to the restrictions imposed by different poetic forms.


Workshop Description

By thinking carefully about the vocabulary they use, pupils will come to realise the role “choice” plays in creative writing processes - and the power that brings with it. Poetry in Sight can also support studies right across the curriculum and beyond - as we can build sessions round any topic/theme of teachers’ choices!

"Many of the students involved said it was one of their favourite parts of the week! I will be recommending As Creatives to colleagues in other departments and schools without a doubt and I very much hope to be able to include you in our literacy week next year." Head of English, The Kingsway School
