As May begins and the days become ever warmer, we must also extend a warm welcome to Carol Ann Duffy for being the next Poet Laureate, who just happens to be the first female laureate and the first Scottish person to be landed the role.

I do remember having to study her works for GCSE, with such notable examples being War Photographer, Valentine and Stealing, and I remember these well (albeit with them being not too long ago), but they’ve certainly had an impact on me. I really admire her and Andrew Motion’s contributions to education in general.

Please Note! The deadline for submissions is May 15th, and we’re still looking especially for features for What’s your Story? We’ll publish one in the magazine and we can choose some to go online. For more details, check the Submit header above.

Cheers,
Susan
