We were absolutely delighted to learn that Zara Meadows, M6 has been selected as one of the top 15 winners in The Poetry Society Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2020. Zara was selected from over 6,000 entrants and over 15,000 poems this year from across the world – an amazing and impressive achievement.
Zara’s winning poem “Found”, published below, will be published on The Poetry Society’s website and featured on their YouTube and Vimeo channels during this week. Zara has also received an invitation to attend a writing residential at the Arvon Centre in Shropshire.
Thank you to all of Zara’s teachers in the English Department over her school career who have helped to inspire, develop and nurture her poetic talent.
Zara is planning to study English at university next year.
Congratulations to Zara and we wish her continued success with her creative writing in the future.
