The Power of Poetry with the New Children’s Laureate
1pm Tuesday 28 March 2023 / Sheldonian Theatre
Inspire your young poets with this rip-roaring adventure into the world of poems with poetry champion and Children’s Laureate Joseph Coelho.
Celebrating the power of poetry in all its forms, Coelho will share some of his special poetry prompts enabling every one of us to become a poet, and reminding us all of the joy that writing, reading and performing poetry can bring.
Coelho is the 2022-2024 Waterstone’s Children’s Laureate and a performance poet, children’s author, and playwright. His debut poetry collection, Werewolf Club Rules, was the 2015 winner of the CLPE CLiPPA Poetry Award, and has been followed by more critically acclaimed poetry books and picture books. He has also written plays for the Polka Theatre, the Lyric, Hammersmith, and the Unicorn Theatre. Coelho has been a guest poet in Cbeebies’ Rhyme Rocket and features in the BBC Teach ‘Understanding Poetry’ online series.
