Poetry By Heart Success

Tuesday 18 April 2017

Congratulations to Indigo Douglas (Year 13, Grecian), who won a hotly-contested school Poetry By Heart competition in February, was crowned Sussex champion over the Easter holiday.

 

In a break from previous tradition, the county round this year happened via video upload, which the Poetry By Heart judges, including ex-Poet Laureate Andrew Motion, judged.

 

Indigo had taken on a considerable challenge in choosing long works by Alexander Pope and Peter Porter, and was rewarded with victory. Her performances can be seen on youtube:

She now goes on to perform at the regional and national finals at the British Library this weekend.
