Poetry by Heart workshop

Poetry by Heart is a national project that is inspiring young people to learn poetry from a specially selected anthology. They pick 2 poems to learn Рone from pre 1914 and one from post 1914 Рlearn it and perform it at one of a series of events across the UK. It is an excellent way of expanding knowledge and criticism of poetry. I will be working a little on the Poetry by Heart project, leading a workshop alongs the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Roundhouse in Camden Рon March 11th 2013.
