Piecing key themes together

We are deeply immersed in drawing out key themes from the interviews conducted over the last two years with Foyle Young Poets and mentors. All the interviews are proving to be highly thought-provoking. Our participants have given us so much rich interview data to reflect on and thematic strands are emerging for further discussion with the Advisory Board in June.

Reading and writing in the Year of the Ox

As we move into the Year of the Ox, an animal symbolising hard work, intelligence and reliability, Young Poets’ Stories is celebrating its one year anniversary. To celebrate this turn of the year, Richard and Sue have been delving into the symbol of the Ox in different faiths, beliefs and in poetry. We hope the images, stories and poems will inspire your own writing.
