Literary Festival: Michael Rosen (EXTRA SESSION)


Due to the last event in UCP Literary Festival selling out, we are pleased to announce that Michael Rosen will be doing an extra talk which will take place from 5pm to 6pm on Wednesday 23rd May 2018.

The extra talk will be focused on reading and writing poetry aimed at teachers, students doing English or anyone interested in reading and writing poetry.  This will be based largely on Michael's book "What is Poetry" (Walker Books).

The event is FREE OF CHARGE for both UCP students and members of the public to attend and will take place in the Lecture Theatre at University Centre Peterborough.

Michael Rosen is one of the best-known figures in the children’s book world, and renowned for his work as a poet, performer, broadcaster and scriptwriter. As an author and by selecting other writers’ works for anthologies he has been involved with over 140 books.  He lectures and teaches in universities on children’s literature, reading and writing.  Michael is a familiar voice to BBC Radio 4 listeners and is currently presenting ‘Word of Mouth’ that looks at the English language and the way we use it.  He visits schools with his one-man show to enthuse children with his passion for books and poetry.
