Poetic Learning


sun bleeding through leaves
skeletons illuminated in midday light
trees reaching the tallest of heights

Red Room Poetic Learning inspires students and teachers to create, perform and publish poetry in meaningful ways.

We enliven experiences with poetry through workshops and curriculum-aligned resources that awaken imaginations and support creative opportunities.

Our 2023 learning focus is the POEM FOREST nature poetry prize, planting a tree for every poem received.

Testimonials

"Thank you for creating and sharing this enriching and authentic learning opportunity with us."

~ Michelle Shiels, Teacher, POEM FOREST 2022

"It was an exhilarating experience that led me and my students into the inspiring world of poetry, skilfully teaching us the craft of engaging poetry in a fun, educational way. It has provided a platform to share and celebrate the students' writing with the world outside our school. All their efforts were applauded by a wider audience. The teaching resources were engaging and linked well to the curriculum."

~ Teacher, Poetry Object 2020

“I wrote this poem on behalf of all trees that are carelessly logged for human needs. I am passionate about protecting and preserving our natural world and would write a thousand poems if a tree was planted each time!"

~ Emma, Year 6, POEM FOREST 2022
