Poet Mike Garry helped our students write poem about life at Oldham College

Mike facilitated a range of ground breaking workshops that aimed to promote literature as a positive and useful tool for learning. His workshops challenged the accepted images and ideas of poetry and repackaged them as contemporary, exciting and important.

As well as appreciating the beauty of words, language and sound, students learnt how to empathise with characters which in turn lead them to explore their own feelings and emotions.

Then, with support from Mike, they discovered how to express their thoughts and feelings through their own poetry.
