Poetry Writing Workshops in Schools

Workshop participants in their classroom

Assist your students in developing their poetry writing skills in preparation for entry into the competition by participating in a free workshop in your school.

In May and/or June each year, the Ipswich Poetry Feast Committee and Ipswich City Council Councillors sponsor poetry writing workshops by professional poets in primary and secondary schools within the Ipswich City Council region.

A special school encouragement award is presented to the school whose participation in the competition most reflects a genuine commitment to, and engagement with, the spirit of the Ipswich Poetry Feast.

Dates: Monday 28 May - Friday 1 June 2018
Audience: Primary & Secondary
Register to host a workshop with poets Catherine Bateson or Josh Donellan.
