Dr Eleanor Rees inspires students on National Poetry Day

Dr Eleanor Rees Wednesday 12 October 2016

Published Poet and Lecturer in Creative Writing Dr Eleanor Rees helped inspire Year 8 students from Upton-By-Chester High School as they marked National Poetry Day.

Dr Rees read from her own collections at a special event held at Liverpool Central Library, exploring topics including climate change and its impact on animals.

English Teacher Miss Green said: “This allowed students to imagine what ‘message’ they would like to project through their own poems as this was the theme for National Poetry Day.

“As a group we gathered on the roof terrace as the sun was setting to perform poetry created that evening. This made for a fantastic atmosphere and a truly memorable experience.”
