The Water Replies

As part of Estuary 2021, we are inviting young people and teachers from across South Essex and North Kent to get involved in creating a collective response to what life is like living and working by the great and spectacular river that is the Thames Estuary.

Led by published poets Selina Nwulu (London Poet Laureate, 2015) and Caroline Bird (London Olympics Official Poet, 2012) the project invites you to write poetry, prose and lyrics capturing your relationship to the estuary and how living by the water impacts on the rhythms of your daily life.

The resulting work will form a very visible part of the programme presented at Estuary 2021 through an exhibition/reading room, live events and as billboards and posters across the region.

Find out how to get involved here.
