‘Marika visited our school in Hertfordshire to deliver two interactive sessions on writing and performing poetry to Year 10 students for their Extended English Curriculum. Marika was responsive to emails and these sessions were easy to arrange with her, and we were totally inspired by her delivery to both groups. Marika is effortlessly cool and even our most challenging students were engaged and engrossed in their learning with her. She delivered a series of short, creative tasks which included free writing; writing poetry inspired by diverse texts; hearing Marika’s own performance poetry; discussing clips of performance poets at work; sharing responses to poems and ultimately having fun with poetry. Marika brought poetry alive for our students; it is no longer a feared and boring beast that sits in our poetry anthologies. We can’t wait to invite Marika back next year!’
