Young Writers’ City at Excelsior Academy

Posted by

Our young writers were in the news again, as our Young Writers’ City project at Excelsior Academy in Newcastle culminated in a spoken word symphony performed by students in years 8 and 9. Since September, pupils at the academy have worked with writers Bob Beagrie, Rowan McCabe and Fred Phethean to create the performance, which involved rap, beat-boxing, spoken word and prose in some of the pupils’ many languages including Slovakian, Spanish, Croatian, Arabic and Romanian.
