Books | Poetry school | Activities | Resources

During the campaign, we’ve been working with BAFTA Scotland-nominated Binary Fable, creators of The Lost Book storytelling animation, to put together the animated film for Carry a Poem. You can book Binary Fable to come to your school and hold an animation workshop – learn storyboarding, and even set up your own animation! Suitable for P4+.

Book a trip to Edinburgh Castle, or one of a number of other Historic Scotland propoerties, to be inspired by the setting, and to carry a poem home with you.

Get your school going mzesostic mad – poet Ken Cockburn is running sessions on poetry in schools, getting classes to create their own poetic masterpieces. Suitable from s1+.

Reader in Residence at the Scottish Poetry Library, poet Ryan van Winkle takes workshops on how to get more involved with poetry – writing, publishing, finding new poems to love. Perfect for older pupils.


If you are interested in booking any of these workshops, or have other ideas for projects and want to talk them through – perhaps you are looking for a poet to come to your school – then contact anna@cityoflitertature.com.
