Poetry workshop with Raymond Antrobus

Poet, Raymond Antrobus, giving a workshop to year 9 City students

Our year 9s welcomed Raymond Antrobus who delivered a poetry workshop. As well as discussing his poem With Birds You're Never Lonely which features in their GCSE anthology, Raymond delved into other worlds and lives with students, reading additional poems of his own, sonnets from Wordsworth, and explored paintings that have inspired his work. It was a rare and wonderful opportunity for students to hear from the poet; this will not only aid them in their GCSE poetry studies but even inspired the young poets at City who are on their own creative journeys.
