Reach Out’s Monster Poetry Day

Four of our talented Year 5 pupils were picked to take part in a poetry day at Nottingham Girls’ High School.

In partnership with Nottingham Poetry Festival 2019, Monster Poetry Day welcomed 44 talented poets and poetry enthusiasts for a day of workshops. The day was kicked off by Georgina Wilding, Nottingham’s Poet Laureate and CEO of Nottingham Poetry Festival 2019. Soon followed by some chilling and thrilling poetry readings by Steve the Zombie, aka Alistair Lane, poet and author.

Inspired by the monstrosities of the morning, the children designed their own creative monster and wrote their own imaginative poem.
