2019 Poetry People Website Background Suffolk Secrets Logo

Poetry People are delighted to announce a brand new project - Lines from the Landscape - which is supported by the new Suffok Secrets Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty fund. This will support a series of workshops in primary schools around the AONB area on the Suffolk coast in the spring and summer of 2017.


The aim is  to encourage children to write about their local landscape and explore what it's like to live in the most easterly county.  We're hoping to discover new young writing talent and help generate brilliant new poems, some of which may be among the Winners and Commended in this year's Suffolk Young Poets Compeition.


We'll be sending details to schools in March but if you're a primary school teacher interested in having a Lines from the Landscape workshop in your school, please do get in touch.
