Foyle Young Poets of the Year Competition

KEHS are delighted to announce that Aliyah, from the Lower Fifth, attended the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Awards Ceremony on Tuesday 17th October. This event saw the top 100 competition winners come together at the Southbank Centre in London. Aliyah, who was shortlisted as a commended poet from a field of 11,000 poets said, “I had a great time in London. It was a chance to meet other poets my age, and listen to a wide range of different styles of poetry.” As one of the top 100 competition winners, Aliyah’s poem will be published in the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Anthology in March 2018.
