SAMPLE PROJECTS

POETIC CONVERSATIONS 2019–20 (UK AND RWANDA)

In late 2019, Daniele Pantano's Creative Writing and Media undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Lincoln worked with and responded to poems written by young Rwandan refugees. The result is a moving statement about the power of poetry and storytelling.

Thanks to Dylan Roys (Senior Lecturer in Radio and Sound), Taylor Slinger, Joseph Hance, and all the Lincoln poets: Danielle Moles, Nazesh Safdar, Viki Edwards, L A Duffy, Chelsea Garland, Fee Griffin, Lydia Waites, Philip Dixon-Smith, Milly L Webster, Al Smith, and Sam MacDonald.
