A huge thank you to Laingholm Primary for hosting the launch of the Secret Book of Poetry!
We had a wonderful morning and it was a real treat to hear 15 talented poets read their work.
The launch was a wonderful way to wrap up the Secret Poetry Project, which was a collaboration between myself and performance poet, educator, producer and publisher, Gus Simonovic.
Gus and I have been busy running workshops, poetry camps and collecting submissions as part of the project.
Overall we wound up with 100 poems from children aged 4 to 16 which we published in The Secret Book.
All of these 100 poems are inventive and many are daring, cheeky, hilarious and brave.
They show us new and extraordinary things, celebrate secret worlds and remind us that everyone has their own unique perspective.
I can’t wait for the next project! More details to come in August…
