Our Year 7 young poets entered their poems into the Live Canon Children’s Poetry Competition 2020.

We are very proud that Mulberry Academy Shoreditch was the winning school, and our Year 7 poetry has won a parcel of books for the school library. The judges said of our students’ work: ‘It really was a remarkable selection, full of empathy, ingenuity, and technical skill’.

Naima Nur Ahmed was the winner of the Year 7-9 category with her poem, In a While, and she has won a £50 book voucher. Four other students were also shortlisted.

All 100 shortlisted poems are published in the Live Canon 2020 children’s anthology.
