M.R. Peacocke Poetry Project

M.R. Peacocke Poetry Project

In the Spring of 2021 we invited KS3 students from local secondary schools to be involved in an exciting new poetry project that Swaledale Festival developed alongside M.R. Peacocke, a much-admired published poet who lives in Barnard Castle. The Festival has a strong legacy of working with local young people both in and out of schools, and we hoped that the project would inspire and strengthen our ties with students in Dales schools.
