Young City Poets is delivered in partnership by Culture Mile Learning and the National Literacy Trust and is a great way to support students from Year 4 to Year 9 to improve and enjoy their writing.

Through a visit to an iconic London venue, such as the Tower of London, the Barbican, or St Paul’s Cathedral, Young City Poets helps to inspire pupils to write poetry of their own.

Following the visit to a cultural venue schools taking part in the project host a workshop with a professional poet or spoken word artist to help the pupils shape and develop their own poems inspired by their visit. Students are then offered opportunities to perform and publish their work.

The project starts with a free full day of CPD with participating teachers on how to use cultural venues to inspire writing. Teachers also receive a year’s membership to the National Literacy Trust website.
