Poet in the City Presents: Super-Sonic Poetry

A Family Workshop

Poet and ethnomusicologist Kate Wakeling is well known for her wild imagination and sparkling sense of sound. Join Kate as she takes you on a super-sonic treasure hunt to help you find the secret music that fizzes through poetry in an interactive workshop for the whole family.

Seek out the splendid sounds of words through lively poetry performances of Kate’s award-winning children’s collection Moon Juice and create some brand new poems of your own! Along the way, you’ll concoct a secret blend of sonic moon juice, race a comet, make a soundscape to accompany a rascally jungle cat, compose an uproarious pirate chant and even invent your very own whizzing-whirring-fizzing-buzzing magical machine. So, what are you waiting for? Climb aboard the poetry ship, setting sail for a super-sonic adventure!

Suitable for ages 5+.

Kate Wakeling grew up in Yorkshire and Birmingham. A pamphlet of her poetry, The Rainbow Faults, is published by The Rialto and her first collection of poems for children, Moon Juice (illustrated by Elīna Brasliņa) published by The Emma Press, won the 2017 CLiPPA Prize and has been nominated for the 2018 Carnegie Medal.
