Students delighted by poetry reading

Aspiring writers from Windsor seek advice from returning alumna.

On Tuesday 2nd July 2019, Windsor welcomed back past student, and now published writer, Elinor Cole to the school library. Elinor performed a reading from her latest published collection of poems, Bella, and held a Q&A for our aspiring writers. Students who attended were fantastically engaged throughout and asked Elinor some very thoughtful and thought-provoking questions. Several enthusiastic students spoke to Elinor after the reading and sought advice on some of their own writing.

Elinor also offers mentoring to poets and writers, and has given lectures at Worcester University on the Creative Writing degree course. She is currently studying for an MA in Shakespeare and works at Shakespeare's Birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Elinor was immensely impressed by the students and says she hopes to return soon to lead writers’ workshops to help nurture future talent at Windsor. A signed copy of Bella, with a personalised message to Windsor students, has been added to the shelves of the school library.
