The Poetry Trail is part of the E17 Art trail, it runs from 1st - 16th September 2012. Artist and people in general exhibit their work at home and studios.

The Poetry trail is a new addition (this is the second year), professional poets as well as people of all ages interested in poetry can participate. I wanted George Mitchell to be part of it this year.

Before we went on Holiday I coordinated with Lawrence, Tarnia and Helen to create some poems for the Poetry trail. I submitted a few poems from both the Primary and Secondary, and then they were curated and selected. The successful poems went to be printed in the Anthology book I showed you earlier.

I also asked some students from the Secondary school to produce some illustrations to go with the poems.
All the poems, including the ones from the students are being displayed in windows of Estate agencies along Hoe Road, near Walthamstow Central Station. They will be there until 16th September.
 
Penny Rutterford, the person who ran the Poetry Art trail had an interview last week in radio BBC London, about the whole project and she mentioned the involvement of George Mitchell School too. I am attaching the MP3 short recording of that interview to this email.

Feel free to walk along Hoe Street to read and see the poems made by the students of George Mitchell.


If you want to buy a copy, you can buy it in Amazon, Waterston in Walthamstow Mall, but it would be better if you buy it from the printer who produced the Anthology or get in touch with me and I get you some.

 

It was feuture in Time one (one whole page) as a top activity to do in Walthamstow, there are articles on a Independent online blog, Walthamstow local newspaper, online blogs, etc.
