We are delighted that Lemn Sissay is Arvon's Education Ambassador.
Lemn speaks out on Arvon's behalf about our work with schools and youth groups - having attended an Arvon course himself, as a young writer.
“...every workshop that I have ever done...a student starts, without realising it, to own the piece of paper that they have written on, as if it were a precious stone. ''Look what I've got. Look. Look.' It was beautiful to watch and to participate in.“ Lemn Sissay
Lemn Sissay’s poetry books include Rebel Without Applause (Bloodaxe Books), Morning Breaks in the Elevator (Payback) and a book of children’s poems, The Emperor’s Watchmaker (Bloomsbury).
