Get Creative: Children’s Poetry Project

Shoreham Wordfest is running a Poetry for Our Time project for children aged 7-11 years, together with Kay Walton from Brighton-based poetry group Rap’n’Rhyme.  There are workshops and great ideas to inspire young poets to write poems about their world as it is now: Lines from the Lockdown.  Originally designed for Adur schools, we have redesigned it as an on-line project and opened it to all local children and families. 

Details of the on-line resources and how to enter your poems are on the poster below.

The selected poems will appear in a unique Shoreham Wordfest book, with book tokens for the best entries.  There will also be a celebratory event for children and families later in the year. The deadline for entries is 31 July.

The workshops and more details about the Poetry for Our Time project are available on
