The Edith Sitwell Legacy

‘Legacy’ is an ‘in’ word right now – the Olympic legacy, the Commonwealth Games legacy and so on. I hadn’t considered a legacy for this ‘year of Edith Sitwell’ but thanks to the Poetry Society it looks like they might be one. Not only have they put up an Edith Sitwell challenge on their Young Poets’ Network, http://www.youngpoetsnetwork.org.uk/2014/03/24/edith-sitwell-eccentricity-and-sounds-new-writing-challenge/, they are also talking about creating a lasting resource on Edith Sitwell for schools. Thus opening up a whole new generation to her poetry and writing.

Scarborough Flare, www.scarboroughflare.co.uk, is also reaching out to young people with their story chair project, encouraging budding storytellers as well as enrapturing children with stories. Check out their website for a fab programme for both readers and writers.
