Poetry for Wolves

A student at Wolverhampton Girls’ High has recently
been named Wolverhampton’s first Young Poet Laureate.
Elizabeth Stuart, a Y12 student, wrote a poem with
the title My City, My Future, focussing on her love for
Wolverhampton and her hopes for her future in the
city. Her ode was one of over 200 entries and was voted
into the finals of the competition by fellow youngsters,
alongside works from 15 other students from across
the city. Elizabeth performed her poem at the finals at
Wolverhampton Central Library.

The Young Poet Laureate has been asked to perform her
poem at Wolverhampton Literature Festival in February.
Elizabeth will also be presented with a medal and a
copy of the anthology containing the poems written by
herself and the other finalists. To find out more about the
