Does your school have a budding poet brimming with inspiration?
In partnership with Tracy Brabin Mayor for West Yorkshire, we recently launched the search for the first ever young person to become poet laureate for the region (years 4, 9 and 10). This is a fantastic platform and opportunity for a young person to have
an experience with other poets, gain valuable work experience and profile around their own poetry writing. We need your help to find the regional poet laureate from Bradford!
