The last little bit of work for 2010 is here.

Monday the 13th of December I’ve been to two schools holding workshops for the Worcestershire Young Poet Laureate competition. In the morning I was at Forest Oak before travelling to Stourport High school so fingers crossed the YPL will have a few more entries.  

Tuesday the 14th I’m at the MAC holding an all day workshop trying to build the confidence and inspire the pupils of Virtual College. Let’s hope I get them all up to the front performing their work.

Wednesday the 15th I finish off for Christmas at the council house performing at another ‘chance to shine’ tea party – with a Christmas theme!

Tomorrow (27th October) I complete my final workshop in search for Worcestershire’s first ever Young Poet Laureate at the artrix in Bromsgrove. If your under 18 and want the chance to be Worcestershire’s first YPL then come down. I’ll be there from 11am until 4pm. http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/cms/leisure-and-culture/young-poet-laureate.aspx for details.

This year Worcestershire decided that they to – like Birmingham and Hereford – would elect a Young Poet Laureate and it’s getting ever closer! This Wednesday (the 29th of September) myself and Spoz have got a photo shoot to help advertise this great competition.
