I was delighted to be invited to talk to GCSE english students on the topic of power and conflict and to describe how I deal with these subjects in my art work. Using my personal experiences as a professional soldier I also attempted to explain what I though the writers were getting at in their poems. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and felt honoured to get the opportunity to talk to such a bright and engaging group of students. My thanks to english teacher Rosie Fawbert Mills for the invitation. Read the college post here.
