Redrafting

I so enjoyed the poetry workshops with Angela Topping this week that I am continuing my writing this weekend. We engaged in an activity to write a poem based on Auden's Tell Me The Truth About Love and on the day I only got so far with it. It has stayed in my mind and I am determined to complete a version this weekend. I wonder if any of the children are keen to do the same? I will certainly be including their best poems in our forthcoming anthology for National Poetry Day in October (This year's theme is 'Truth'). Reflecting on the day itself, I don't think I will forget the children's faces when I read my confessional poem so all in all we have made good memories and have poems to look forward to. That seems rather good to me.
