Fenland Scoops National Literary Award!
Working with Wisbech and Fenland Museum we have been announced as a recipient of a coveted Clore Poetry and Literature Award!
We are very excited and proud that we have been recognised for the work we do - the Clore Duffield Foundation received a total of 293 applications and made just 13 awards, and only one award in the whole of the East of England - to us!
This award will enable the partnership to launch the Young Poet Laureate for Fenland competition and deliver exciting poetry sessions in schools and museums across Fenland. The project will run alongside the adult Fenland Poet Laureate competition and will culminate in a limited edition book as well as an exciting awards evening in the library of Wisbech and Fenland Museum.
‘Young people have a rich imagination and this is a wonderful opportunity for them to express themselves in verse and be an inspiration to us all.’ says David Wright, Curator Wisbech & Fenland Museum… we say so too!
We are asking local poets, literary groups and schools to get in touch for more information.
