Rachel Rooney Performance

How did it go?

We had a great time! Check back here for our write-up soon…

Rachel Rooney Workshop

Rachel Rooney has run workshops for all age ranges and abilities, both as a teacher and as a children’s poet.

At the beginning of the session, Rachel will introduce herself and then read a couple of her poems. Then the class will work on creating a group poem followed by individual writing.

Towards the end of the session there will be the chance to read and share some of the work created during the workshop and ask Rachel questions.

Rachel Rooney's poetry collection for children is a well-crafted, stimulating and un-patronising box of delights, always accessible and constantly inventive.
