This cloth, a dirty pink, threadbare:
ropes of terry-white stripe its breadth
like the cane-marks across my calves

~ excerpt from 'Face-washer' by Eileen Chong


Red Room Poetry learning resources are developed in consultation with poets and education professionals, with the aim of meeting cross-curriculum outcomes and suiting differentiating learning for a range of classroom contexts.


Poetry Object 2017

This learning resource is designed to support students and teachers in developing imagery and technique before composing an object poem. The order of activities is flexible though we recommend delivery over 2-3 successive lessons where students are given time to reflect, conceptualise and respond.
