Words that burn

Words That Burn is an innovative resource to get secondary school students excited about poetry, human rights and their ability to create.

It was developed with the support of Lord Saatchi and The Poetry Hour in association with Cheltenham Festivals.

The students' literary creations can contribute to human rights change. Each year, students can write solidarity or protest poems about a person at risk, which we will forward on to them or the relevant authority.
