Writers’ Group Poetry Showcase

On Thursday evening, the Writers’ group performed some of their poetry to a group of parents in the Library as part of the TAG Litfest 2017.

This is a dedicated group of seven girls (we do want boys to join) who have spent the year writing the most powerful and skilful poetry. It is revealing, crafted and profound. Also sometimes funny.

The members come from years 8 to 10 and in some cases they have been writing for three years. One has been entered in the Young Writers’ competition and has reached the finals; this is not the first time that this has happened to a member of the group. A booklet of work has been produced, and there is a sample below of two of the poems.

The Writers’ group will, I hope, continue to meet and to astound.
