Poetry by Heart


The national poetry recitation competition for 14-18 year olds

Poetry by Heart is an inspiring competition for students in Years 10 to 13, that has to date reached over 10,000 students across the country.

In 2017 I had the honour of being part of the judging panel for the county competitions. Along with academics, poets and educators we shortlisted students from each county to take part in the national finals.

My entire view and understanding of poetry has been completely changed
