About the Event

This is the Year’ is a free writing workshop for 11 – 16-year olds to use poetry to explore and express the moments, feeling, places and people that have influenced you during these unusual times.

Coronavirus and lockdown have altered the world we live in. We’ve had to make changes – big and small – to our everyday lives. The pandemic has transformed how and where we learn, play and connect to the outside world and people we love.

At King’s College London, we want to know what life has been like for you and how you feel about it. We want to improve pandemic life for young people and to make recommendations to policymakers on what changes can be made to better support you and other young people during this time.

Poet Belinda Zhawi leads a session to guide you through turning that inspirational idea into a powerful poem. You will learn about different poetry styles, tips and tricks to spark your imagination and help you build a prize-worthy poem for our competition, ‘This is the Year’.
