Poetry

Having previously worked with him on a project which explored life in World War 1 we approached professional poet Ben Mellor to ask whether he could deliver some poetry workshops for Young People as part of the Wonders of Wythenshawe.

the concept: We wanted Young People of all ages and abilities to be able to express their heritage through the written and spoken word. Ben started with some ideas which the Project Team gave him and then developed them with the Young People. Once they had written and refined their work he encouraged them to share them with each other. He then came back to work on Performance Skills. A number of  the Young People performed their poems at the Showcase, supported by Ben, and their poems are included in the mural and the book.

  1. I have a poem which I have written about growing up in 1950’5 Wythenshawe. I want to share it with Wythenshawe people. What is the best way of doing this?

    • Hi Brenda,
      You can share your poem here if you would like us to add it to our Poetry pages. We aim to add all the poems what were used in at the launch and some that didn’t make that cut. We’re always please to accept new material to add to the site.
      Thanks for your interest.
