Poetry Moves 2014

Poetry Moves! was inspired by Literature Live, a festival of performed poetry, video and animation held at Stalham High School, in Norfolk UK. Over 8 days in July 2014, students wrote and performed poetry for the big screen. They worked with professional poets, a theatre director and two film makers to create a series of short films and animations based on their creative writing.
