We are currently seeking schools in Nottingham to get involved in our fully funded poetry programme for class groups of students in Years 5 to 9 from Autumn 2021. The project will run throughout the school year and will involve:
- Engagement with a local cultural venue, through a class visit or similar activity
- A poetry workshop with local professional poet, in-school or virtual
To register your interest please email Sean Cumming, Young Poets Project Manager.
This area is for schools involved in the Young Nottingham Poets project. Downloads on the page will only be accessible to schools registered on the programme.
For 2021, we are delivering the project remotely, supporting you with activities suited to home or school learning.
We recommend that students work in the following order:
Step 1: Getting started - Starter activities for writing poetry
Step 2: Ideas-generation stage - The poetry 'trail'
Step 3: Development - A workshop with your allocated poet alongside 'development activities'
Step 4: Performance and anthology - We will prepare an anthology of students' poems and provide opportunities for performance

If you have any questions about the project, please contact Sean Cumming, Young Poets Project Manager.
