Recently, the appetite for poetry at the Victory Academy was whetted when 8×1 welcomed the Young Poet Laureate for London, Selina Nwulu, into their classroom for a delicious workshop on the theme of food. The students discussed their favourite foods and Selina led them through a discussion exploring the sensations, memories and politics of the things we eat: from body-shaming to economic exploitation, memories of cherished moments to the feeling of pure delight of indulgence. Enthused with a newfound sense of possibility and confidence, the students were eager to share their work and perform their poems for the class. Students said that working with Selina “made the poems more fun” and that they “understood poetry more than they would if they read it by themselves”.
