#keepconnected

Times have changed, life has changed, what hasn't changed is the power of our words. Our keep connected competition saw over 2,700 young people use poetry as a way to express how they were feeling.


Sky News FYI:

To celebrate World Poetry Day, we had an exclusive feature on sky news FYI on the 21st March.

With over 2000 young people participating from diverse backgrounds we had 69 schools from all four nations tell us how they were feeling using the power of poetry.
