Hi, I'm Head of English at Wells Cathedral School, an 11-18 semi-Independent school in lovely Somerset. I write articles and teaching resources, for a range of organisations such as the English and Media Centre, Zig Zag education and Classic Comics. I am particularly interested in poetry, espeically the modern stuff that few people choose to read. Recently I have co-written, edited and published a series of books on poetry, including the latest on AQA's Love Poems Through the Ages anthology. All peripeteia books are available exclusively via Amazon.
I started peripeteia in my free time a few years ago, originally on facebook, where we still have a presence and on our website. I'm delighted with how it's progressing, particularly our new international dimension and connections with university English departments.
I would like to encourage members to start posting ideas/ thoughts /resources/ poems/aphorisms/ literary jokes/ links/ stories/ research or even just desperate pleas for help! Please don't feel intimidated about posting; once you take the plunge you'll find the literary water is warm and supportive.
I hope too that members enjoy our seminar series. I would especially like to thank our excellent seminars leaders, who are giving their time and expertise for free :).
