One hundred and thirty four learners from Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Engineering College were recently chosen to have their poetry showcased in the ‘Young Writers’ anthology ‘Busta Rhyme – Future Voices’.
The publication gave students from across the country the opportunity to write a poem based on something they feel passionate about. Mrs Armstrong-Ball, English teacher at the school, explained how “lyrical poets have always used verse to express emotion and voice an opinion on all sorts of subjects from current affairs and identity to love and loss, the Busta Rhyme anthology gave our young people the motivation and inspiration to do just this! Our learners, from across all key stages, fully engaged with the project and were overjoyed at having their work celebrated in a national publication, as a school community we are all very proud of them”
The best poet chosen from the anthology will receive £1000 for themselves and the best school will gain the Young Writers’ Award of Excellence.
