The final publication is a result of workshops in four secondary schools from the  London Borough of Tower Hamlets; George Green’s School, Green Spring Academy Shoreditch, Langdon Park School and Morpeth School.

The project was inspired by the work of Chris Searle and four outstanding young poets Caleb Femi, Maria Ferguson, Cecilia Knapp and Talia Randall from the UK’s leading poetry organisation Apples and Snakes.

I loved it. There was such a buzz everywhere – those vibrant young poet leaders, bubbling over with enthusiasm for their task and taking such pride in the wonderful work which the student poets had written
