Published poets at Smestow!

Seventeen budding young poets from Smestow Academy have been published in an anthology of poetry titled Lest We Forget.

The published collection of poems, which are based on the theme of war and peace, came as a result of a competition for students aged 11 and above. Launched in November 2023, the competition was ran by a company called Young Writers – an organisation which aims to support and encourage young individuals interested in writing.

In November last year, the English department at Smestow Academy invited students from Years 7 to Years 10 to apply, with a tailored lesson alongside Remembrance Day to encourage and inspire creativity. Many students produced outstanding poetry and were rewarded for their efforts with a certificate during assembly.

This month, the anthology Lest We Forget has been published and includes seventeen names from Smestow Academy. We are extremely proud of their talents, and pleased to see their work showcased nationally. Well done to our incredibly talented poets!
