We would like to update you on the BNV team’s activities of late. As we have previously mentioned, LYA is currently fundraising to take a team of youth poets to represent Leeds, Yorkshire and the UK at the Brave New Voices festival in Washington DC in July.
We would like to publicly thank two organisations for their support so far. Firstly, Leeds Inspired has been amazing in featuring LYA on their own blog. See what has been written about us here.
Secondly, Waitrose has accepted our cause for their Community Matters fund. If you happen to shop at Waitrose in Meanwood in May, be sure to place your token in LYA’s box!
Meanwhile, the team continues to meet regularly to write, share and rehearse! We now have one finished duet, another almost-finished duet and plenty more poems in the making.
