Poetry Success

On the 14th October, Georgia and her family attended the Suffolk Young Poets celebration at the Halesworth Art Centre. Georgia had received a commendation for her poem; the celebrations included a workshop with Dean Parkin who is a member of The Poetry People team.  Georgia received a lovely certificate as a commended poet and all the commended poets and families were asked to write a line each starting with ‘The best journey…’ and ‘The worst journey…’, this was all put together and read out.  The evening took place in the theatre and all ten winners took to the stage to read their poems and receive their certificate and prize.  This was followed by a performance by Matt Harvey who read a few of his poems and explained the illustrations from some of his books, Georgia and her family found him very entertaining and inspiring.  Afterwards Georgia had a book signed by Matt Harvey and had her photo taken.  Her mum tells us that Georgia really enjoyed the event and is very keen to further her creative writing.  She also explained that the evening was fantastic and they felt very lucky to be part of it. Well done Georgia, we are proud of you!
