Mother Tongue, Other Tongue

Posted On: 18/10/19

Last year, Sam Newton (now at Trinity College) and Joshua Bowden (now in Year 10) each wrote a poem in German and French respectively. Mme Townsend entered these two poems into the Routes Into Languages East Mother Tongue Other Tongue poetry competition and both poems were shortlisted. They have now been published in an anthology.

All those shortlisted were invited to the celebratory event at Murray Edward College, Cambridge on Wednesday 16th October. The event included a Poetry Slam, led by slam poetry Champion, Joelle Taylor, who also performed her own poetry and presented the trophies to the winners.
