We had a really great launch event for We come from… Write from the Heart 3 (edited by Dean Atta and Vicky Wilson) at Beaumont School in St Albans on 9 July.
The book contains some 60 poems by secondary school students who have English as an additional language and is now available to buy on Amazon. For more about the project, click here.
About fifteen of the young contributors read their poems and Dean performed two of his own that are in the book.
Thanks to everyone who worked on the project – it has been a wonderful experience and a real cause for celebration.
Carole Connelly of the Herts BME Achievement Team and Suzanne Rider of Hertfordshire Music Service are hoping to get funding for future similar projects – watch this space!
