Following a recent consultation, teachers across the estuary region identified a need for support in teaching poetry.
We invite teachers from all subject areas to attend our free CPD sessions which focus on contemporary poetry inspired by the Thames Estuary.
These workshops designed and led by internationally-acclaimed poets Caroline Bird and Selina Nwulu will explore how poetry can be taught and utilised as a compelling resource within the curriculum and for wellbeing.

These workshops are supported by Creative Estuary (a DCMS funded programme), ROH Bridge and Southend Borough Council. This series of FREE poetry workshops for teachers is part of The Water Replies – a large scale project which forms a visible part of the programme within Estuary 2020, the second edition of the large-scale arts festival that celebrates the spectacular Thames Estuary, from 18 September – 18 October 2020.
Taking place on the river itself, and along the 60 miles of South Essex and North Kent coastline, an ambitious programme of artworks and events will respond to powerful themes resonant to the Estuary including industrial heartland, nationally important heritage sites, protected wildlife, acres of open marshland, together with seaside fronts and London commuter towns.
The festival will include installations, exhibitions, large scale events with an accompanying film and talks programme. Performances set in the landscape, or on the river itself, artist led walks, field trips and podcasts will explore the rich, diverse culture of the region and bring new audiences to significant sites fostering a deeper understanding of the Estuary.
