It’s fun to write a poem
It doesn’t have to rhyme
So come and have a go with me!
We’ll have a lovely… experiment with words!

Poetry is a fabulous way to describe the world, to say how you’re feeling… or just to have fun! What’s more, anybody can write a poem. It’s just words! Vivian has been playing with words ever since she was tiny… do come and join her and discover how you too are a poet!
