Foyle Young Poets Poets Group Shot

Arvon works in partnership with the Poetry Society to run an annual residential course for the winners of the prestigious Foyle Young Poet competition.

The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award is one of the largest literary prizes in the world, with thousands of entries pouring in from young poets aged 11-17 from right across the world. This film celebrates the impact of the Award, and follows the top 15 winners of 2013 during their week long writing residency at The Hurst, The John Osborne Arvon Centre in Shropshire.

You can find out more on the Poetry Society website.
