GIVING VERSE A VOICE

Closing Date: Friday 17th of February 2017

Busta Rhyme gives your students the opportunity to write a poem about something they feel passionately about.

Lyrical poets express emotion through verse on all matter of subjects, from current affairs, religion and identity to love, loss and everything in-between. It's a chance to voice opinion, share a memory or dilemma, impart advice, or indulge in writing about something they adore. From ballads and odes to rhymes and free verse, what inspires your students?
