Charlie Jordan is a former Birmingham Poet Laureate, and also runs workshops that lift poems off the page and engage pupils with live performance poetry. She runs dynamic sessions where young people write and perform their own work in ‘Poetry Slams’, where even non-traditional learners become more confident with words and literacy. She works with pupils of all ages, including those at risk of exclusion or already in Pupil Referral Units. She’s worked with young people with Autism, and has run projects with looked after children, young carers and ‘gifted and talented’ young writers.
