Harry Laing, Poet & Author
Harry Laing is a poet, comic performer and creative writing teacher with over twenty years' experience in schools. His book of poems for 6 -12 year olds called Shoctopus came out in 2015 and is proving a hit with both kids and teachers. His collection contains a wide variety of poems: weird, wacky, reflective, lyrical and full of humour. Harry brings energy and a huge sense of fun to his school workshops and performances. His delight in language will inspire children with their own writing. Harry can focus on poetry or on creative writing more generally for small class-sized groups and can also perform his poems to large student audiences.
