Poetry for the Planet

Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Can poetry turn you green? Find out with green poet Martin Kiszko.

His books are packed with eco-powered verses, illustrated by Oscar-winning animator Nick Park.

Learn how to write and perform a kenning, a clerihew or a fiendishly tricky double dactyl, using the pictures for environmentally friendly inspiration.

Step up for the planet and get creative at this vibrantly verdant workshop (okay, you got us. That also means ‘green’.)
