Children's Events

StAnza has always featured events for young poetry fans. From readings by children’s authors to staged performances, they are targeted at the age groups specified in the listings. Poets make school visits prior to and during the festival and we are actively involved in work with teachers on developing poetry teaching skills. StAnza exhibits at the festival the poetry and artwork produced by local pupils during the school workshops and projects delivered for StAnza.
