laughter & tears
Poetry Project

Laughter & Tears was inspired by the experiences and work of poet and broadcaster, Michael Rosen. Together with John Foster and Paul Cookson they held poetry sessions in Bournemouth Library to encourage creative ideas from the young people about their life experiences, both happy and sad.

Stourfield Junior School and Haymoor Middle School worked with artist Jeff Pigott on making these handcrafted poetry books.
