poetry in the air(port)

Heathrow-Passport-to-Poetry

A tip of the passport to Heathrow Airport, London, which will add poetry to air this Easter holiday (Easter is March 27). Anticipating a larger-than-usual crowd and lots of families, the airport teamed up with four children’s authors and poets to create and record poems about holidays and travel for “poetry points” in the airport terminals. As part of the initiative, children under the age of 16 are also invited to submit their own holiday-themed poem and there will be workshops conducted around the airport. Read the story on the Heathrow Airport website and follow the links to read and watch the poems.
