We started up in September 2016 and meet on Friday lunchtimes in Room S1 where we attempt creative writing challenges and then enjoy sharing the results. All are welcome to our supportive group of Y8s,9s and 10s.
This term we’re going to focus on entering national competitions and hope to visit London in the summer to work with a group called ‘Barbican Poets’.
Here’s a selection of what we’ve done so far. You’ll see that some of them include Japanese words and phrases translated from their stock of ‘season words’. This was us trying to write authentic Haiku poems.
Others come from our writing about ‘personal archaeology’, the kind of things you might have dropped in the garden when you were little! This led to interesting work on ‘memory’..
Hope you enjoy them,
