I am organising a Sixth Form Conference on ‘Poetry of the First World War’ at Haileybury College on Friday the 17th of October.

Adrian Barlow and Simon Armitage are confirmed as keynote speakers. There will be a panel of papers by pupils and a roundtable discussion involving teachers. There’s also a poster competition for pupils to present their research into a WW1 Poetry topic.

Places at the conference are free. There is a link to information about the conference on the school’s website http://www.haileybury.com/news/haileyburys-first-world-war-trench-open-to-school-visits-as-part-of-centenary-commemorations

Kind regards,
