YOUNG POETS – READINGS AND COMPETITION RESULTS, WITH BRIAN PATTEN

We are delighted that Brian Patten, best-selling author of several books of poetry for children, has agreed to judge our ‘Young Poets’ competition. At this event he will announce the prizewinners in two age groups and present some poetry of his own.

Brian’s poetry collections for children include Gargling with Jelly, first published in 1985 (“Hilarious, lyrical, outrageous… there's never a dull moment in this marvellously quirky and refreshing brew.”) This wonderful book is still in print and still selling. Brian also edits poetry anthologies, most notably (2006) The Puffin Book of Modern Children's Verse.

4:30pm to 5:30pm
