English Students Build Confidence in Creative Writing

Posted on 10th July 2023

Student Workshops with Emma Beynon

Last month the English department was delighted to welcome Emma Beynon, who is working on the Art + People + Place project with Herefordshire Council and Studio Response.

Emma, a former A Level English teacher, works with communities to help individuals "find their voice" and build their creativity and confidence in creative writing.
Emma kindly hosted two workshops with students to create poetry centred around their surroundings, including favourite places and thoughts on Herefordshire.

With a wealth of experience and many adventures, the students engaged well with Emma and were inspired to create some magnificent poetry. Their pieces were then taken to be displayed at the Art + People + Place exhibition in Gomond Street, Hereford.
