Poetry prompts – Video series






The Waterstones Children’s Laureate, Joseph Coelho, has announced his smash-hit ‘Poetry Prompts’ will return for a second year on 11 September. Through weekly bitesize videos - each lasting under 10 minutes - children will be inspired to pick up a pen and start writing their own poem with these fun and engaging resources which teachers can share during registration time. Each prompt is accompanied by free, downloadable resources for schools, libraries and at home to encourage further learning and exploration of poetic form and literacy. A multitude of special guests will join Joseph in the videos, who will teach viewers different techniques every week! Following the start of the new series and National Poetry Day, Joseph is set to release the perfect companion book, Poetry Prompts: All Sorts of ways to start a poem. Illustrated and full of tips, tricks and guides, children will be able to craft, perform and enjoy their own creations. www.booktrust.org.uk/what-we-do/childrens-laureate/poetry-prompts
