Great News - Carol Ann Duffy is to be our next Poet Laureate!
If anyone can make poetry exciting and relevant to 21st century Britain it's Ms Duffy. She's long been a familiar name on the school syllabus which means she's well know amongst the young folk. Her poetry, for the most part, is direct, accessible, at times controversial and generally very popular. She's the breath of fresh air we need.
Plus I can't wait to read her royal poems!
