17/12/2017 YEAR 10 POETRY WORKSHOP

As part of the Shared Education Project, Mrs. Pepin took some year ten students to visit St. Joseph’s College for a poetry workshop lead by Derry poet, Julieann Campbell. Julieann read from her collection, ‘Milk Teeth’, which she described as an anthology about the little things that mattered.

The students found her work enjoyable and accessible. Some of their favourites included: ‘The Comb’, ‘The Lazy Virus’, ‘Trapped in Videotape’ and ‘One About Coffee Jars’. Julieann discussed the meaning behind her work and encouraged the students to write about the things that mattered to them too. She described writing as a therapeutic process, something that gives you time alone to work out your thoughts and something that she thought was becoming harder in today’s technologically driven world.

This is the first in a series of poetry workshops that Loreto College, St. Joseph’s College and Coleraine Grammar School will work on together.
