Able Writers’ Day
Peckham Library, Thursday 16th May 09:30-14:45

Caboodle Books have organised an Able Writers’ Day for Year 7 / 8 pupils at Peckham Library on 16th May 2019.

The author running this event is the performance poet, Neal Zetter. Neal is a fantastic poet who inspires everyone he works with.

Neal is a London-based comedy performance poet – with a 25-year background in communication management and mentoring – he uses the writing and/or performing of poetry to develop literacy, self-expression, confidence, creativity and presentation skills in children. His workshops are lots of fun as well as being very educational.

Neal will encourage the children to have fun with words and language while developing their imaginations. Children will learn simple but effective poetry structures, improve their use of language tools and ‘word choice’ consistent with the curriculum.

Neal regularly refreshes his Able Writers’ days and Writers Workshops so will be introducing some new fun literacy/poetry-based activities to his events in 2019. He has two new poetry books out during the year which will also feature. 

The children will be given the opportunity to perform some of their work at the end of the workshop.

This workshop will be perfect for Gifted & Talented children and those who really enjoy writing.

The Able Writers’ Programme was set up about fifteen years ago by the fantastic poet Brian Moses to promote author led workshops in schools. We now have over 3,000 Secondary, Primary and Independent schools involved in these events throughout the UK.

Ofsted have highly praised this programme on many occasions as it not only gives the children the opportunity to work with a current writer – approaching literature from a different angle but it also helps to further build links between local schools within the community. The day also serves as an excellent professional development day for the accompanying member of staff.

The cost for this event is £30 + VAT per child (includes lunch).
