Poetry at Cranbrook on National Poetry Day

Luke Wright – British Poet, performer, publisher, broadcaster – paid a return visit to Cranbrook School on Thursday 28th September in celebration of National Poetry Day.  Luke spent time with a variety of year groups talking about what poetry means to him, his life as a poet and reciting many of his fantastic poetic creations.  The students were all enthralled from his visit and their comments are testament to this:

“every poem seemed to tell a story, with a message or advice that we could usefully take in”

“really captivating”

“full of passion and dramatic acting whilst reciting his poems”

“a new insight on approaching poetry”

“hope he visits us again”

Thank you Luke for visiting Cranbrook once again and providing our students with a new perspective on poetry.
