Thank you so much for your energetic, inspiring and enthusiastic poetry workshop. I was really impressed to see the way all took part purposefully, whatever their age or ability, and the way they performed so well after so short a time. Dan gave them a belief in what they were doing and made it fun. It was one of the best workshops we have had at St Edmund’s.

Dan was a very inspiring poet and I would be happy if he returned to Fulston. My whole class found Dan one of the best guests we have had in our school and we hope we will see more of him. Dan has such power in the words he chooses. From all of Fulston I would like to say Thank You to Dan - you’re such a role model.
