Fruits of Children's Poetry Workshops

Well - poetry inspiration and poems written are the true outcomes
of poetry workshops.

In May I had a week visiting Ipswich and outlying schools with poetry workshops to create and inspire entries for the Ipswich Poetry festival.

Wow!  It was amazing to reach so many children- in different age groups to show them how easy and how satisfying it is to write a poem.

Thanks to Carol Moore at the Ipswich library and her dedicated committee for sending me this article.

I love encouraging children and adults to write and in doing so to discover a bit more about themselves and the world around them.
