Local poet Anthony Anaxagorou has achieved international acclaim as a thinker, writer and activist. His poems have gone viral on social media, and he set up the publishing company, Out-spoken Press. He talked to whole school assembly about finding his voice as a poet, and about how poetry can reflect on the hardest issues of our times. He read his famous poem "This is not a poem, and I am not a poet…"
Anthony held poetry writing workshops with Year 11 and then Year 13 students.
"I feel like my writing's improved already" was one comment.
At lunchtime, students had a chance to meet Anthony in the Library and buy a signed copy of his latest book, Heterogeneous. It was an inspiring day, and we hope to be able to work with Anthony Anaxagorou again in the near future.
