Over two workshops on April 24, poets Eileen Chong and Elizabeth Allen joined The Red Room Company to ignite new poetic possibilities with Year 8 students from Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College. Eileen and Elizabeth led 50 students in writing activities inspired by the Poetry Object learning resource. Students tapped into previously undiscovered wonders in their favourite objects, drawing magic and mystery from the mundane.
