Poetry in school - two LitFest events

Two events in local secondary schools are about to take place, and you are invited. It does not matter at all that you may not be a school student or a parent - just come to hear some of the terrific poetry that has been created by young people, helped along by John Siddique (Poems From A Northern Soul, Crocus Books) and Matthew Hedley Stoppard (A Family Behind Glass, Valley Press) who have been leading workshops for weeks.  Wonders have been worked.

On Thursday 17 March from 6pm at Ralph Thoresby School the Own Your Words group, which meets every week to devise, revise and present its work, will perform alongside student musicians, dancers - and Matthew Hedley Stoppard.

On Tuesday 22 March from 6pm at Lawnswood School a group encouraged and mentored by the English department and by John Siddique will perform in a 'Poetry Gala' - along with the visiting poet himself.
