Yr 12 & 13 English Literature students had a fantastic day at the EMC literature conference at Friends House, London. There were some interesting talks about poetry, setting in the novel & why we should stand up for the classics, & it was great to see Scarlett taking part in the ‘Lamentable Comedy: Finding the Funny in Shakespeare’ workshop before an entertained audience! It was also wonderful to hear contemporary poets Raymond Antrobus & Theresa Lola in conversation & to see their poetry performances too. Lots of books were purchased, & signed, & our students came away with lots to think about! A great day!!
