Can I Have a Word

The Barbican fine arts center presents this award winning site presenting four lessons to inspire creative writing. "Changing Voices" focuses on life in South Africa, "The Elements" examines earth, wind, fire and water in the arts, "The Human Body" uses the body to inspire poetry, and "The Odyssey" traces the story of Odysseus as a means for teaching students to develop characters. Eight poets from a variety of cultures discuss poetry and read from their own works.
