As well as being interactive and engaging for our learners, staff and the creative team, this first project was - importantly - educational.
Michelle Eckford, Stanmore's Head Teacher, said, "it was a brilliant and fun experience for everyone. I met with Leyla and Dan before the sessions to discuss our learners' communication, skills and abilities, and their likes and dislikes.
"We have worked hard to develop a whole-school literacy approach and following this experience, the staff's perception of what literacy looks like for our learners has changed.
"We've gone on to develop a central library hub for literacy development, literacy-focused groups, and resources to ensure an inclusive and approach."
Alistair Heather, Scottish Poetry Library's Marketing Manager, said, "we have learned a lot, and we want to use that learning going forward. We want to do much more of this. We recognise our need to keep reaching out, raising up poetry, innovating the art form. And together with Capability Scotland, we do that."
