I met up with Stephen, the adult Birmingham Poet Laureate today, to have a chat about plans for the year and so on. He gave me some pointers for running poetry workshops, which is brilliant, because I’m booked to do one for the first time in the very near future. At least now I’m slightly less nervous about doing it! I'm so excited about working with him throughout the year ahead, and I'm set to learn a lot.
With Children in Need coming up on the 16th, my school has asked me to write a poem for it, and perform it in assemblies during the week leading up to it. This will be my first time performing in front of my school, so I hope they'll go easy on rotten tomato throwing!
