This week has been a nice mix of rest and work for me as it’s half term.

Tuesday the 22nd I was at the Carling Cup finalist’s ground (the blues) holding a poetry workshop based on the theme of football. What great fun that was!

Thursday the 24th I had a real fun couple of hours at South Yardley Library getting the young people there writing a poem around the theme of chocolate. I’ve had some real positive comments from them as well so that’s really nice to see!

Saturday the 26th I’m meeting up with a creative agent from Bright Space to look at putting some of my poems to music. Let’s hope that works out.

Sunday the 27th I’m at Wembley. COME ON YOU BLUE BOYS!!!!! SOTV!!!

Wednesday the 16th of February I took another trip down to Telford to do a poetry performance for the pupils and parents at John Randall School. Alongside me was DNA dance crew member Tanita who was strutting her stuff as I did a little bit of spoken word.  

Friday the 18th I was back at Netherton Primary working with the rest of year 5 getting them to write poems about themselves and their dreams ready for their music video.
