Join us in celebrating National Poetry Day on Thursday 7th October 2021 and win a free poetry workshop for your school with children’s poet Kate Wakeling!

 This year, to celebrate National Poetry Day, we have invited students in years 5/6 and 7/8 to send us their poems and help us make an online ‘Poetry Mosaic’ on the theme of ‘Choice’. Poems will join others written and submitted independently, written and gathered from all over the Northwest, and will be displayed online at www.litfest.org in the week following the deadline of 1st October 2021. 

As part of this project, we also offered 2 exciting opportunities for schools to win a free workshop with children’s poet Kate Wakeling (Moon Juice and Cloud Soup), who will visit the winning school in person or online to do a lively reading and workshop for your students. 

The deadline for submission to the Poetry Mosaic has now passed, but you can still apply for a free activity-pack full of fun tasks to get the imagination and ideas flowing. Available in both digital and paper formats, please register for yours at: info@litfest.org
