We are offering young writers (age 16-19) a great opportunity to take part in a screenwriting course that will take place during the summer holidays.

verse vs verse

reading, writing and poetry

Verse vs Verse is a reading and writing project for 500 children in primary schools in North and West London. Partipating children broaden their reading by exploring a range of books to inspire and develop their writing. They also use drama and performance to bring poetry to life.
