Longfield Academy students attend performance by poet Neal Zetter

On Tuesday 16th May 2017 students from Longfield, Wilmington and Strood Academies were given the opportunity to go to Wilmington Grammar School for Girls to see a performance from the poet Neal Zetter.

The experience was shared with Wilmington Grammar School for Girls, Wilmington Grammar School for Boys, Dartford Grammar School for Girls, Dartford Grammar School for Boys and Holmesdale School.

Some of the students chose to purchase Neal’s latest book ‘It’s Not Fine to Sit on a Porcupine’ and have had it signed.

Neal performed several of his poems with lots of audience participation. He showed that you can write poetry about absolutely anything from ‘Ketchup’ to ‘Dads’ and that poetry can be full of fun and not dull and boring as it is sometimes perceived.
